Oh this is hard, and sad. My mother passed away on Monday - 24Th - she was 80 yrs. Mom has been sick for the past 8 months, and I know that she is not suffering anymore. But I never wanted her to go. She has raised me and 3 of my sisters alone. Yes, a single parent. Yes we are products of "Father took off". Not rich by far. But growing up, we didn't know that we had nothing. She gave us all the love and care we needed. Never went without. And as I was growing older, I realized how hard she had it. And how hard she worked. And I loved her even more. Mom was always there to help anyone of us...or just anyone.
I love and miss you.
