In Memory of My Mom



Mother's day is right around the corner. During the last nine years, I think often of my mother.  She went to meet my Dad on June 15, 2003, Father's Day that year.

I still miss her but I know she's in a much better place.

She suffered from Alzheimer's.  This was a very difficult time for me and my sister. So in a way to help overcome my grief, I wrote a short essay about her death.

If you would like to read it, please go to Angie's Diary. 

It helped me to heal and move forward just like I know my Mom would have wanted me to.

My mother was an extraordinary woman. Of course, most mothers are.  She was raised in Mississippi at a time when the world was growing and changing.  She grew up during the depression era but she always carried an air of sophistication and class about her.


So, here's to Mom!

Happy Mother's Day!

It's obvious your parents left a legacy of love.
Hugs and thoughts,Judy.

I was thinking of my mom today. The first Thursday of each month she always had a doctor's appointment and would stop by my house before she headed home.
