Dear Mom, 

To have another Mother’s Day come around where I can’t call you or send a Mother’s Day card is a hard pill to swallow to say the least. Only having you for 31 years of my life seems so unfair, but I can’t question it because I know we all have a time and date, I just wasn’t prepared when yours came. I would like to take a moment to cherish the time that I was able to have you apart of my life.

I want to thank you for building me up to be the kind of woman, mother, sister, and friend that I am today. It is you who taught me courage even through the hard times. You taught me what unconditional love is and how to share it with  my daughter. You taught me how important it is to laugh and to make others laugh. It is you who showed me that I had the capability of raising my daughter alone if I had to. You are the foundation of me and I stand proud in knowing that I’m one of Sarah’s daughters. 

I pray that you know that if I knew the last time I seen you would be my last time seeing you, I would’ve stayed around and hugged you even longer. Had I known the last conversation we had on the phone would’ve been our last conversation, I would’ve said “I Love You” over and over again. Words can’t explain the emptiness I feel at times knowing that I can’t call my momma every time something good or bad happens in my life. But I’m forever grateful to know that you’re watching over all of us. 

As it says in your headstone, “Greater than death, is love”, and I feel your love surrounding me everyday. Thank you for giving us all the love in your heart!! 

Until we meet again. 

Love always, 

Marie
