In Loving Memory

My mom passed away this morning after fighting a courageous battle with stage 4 colon cancer for almost 3 years.

My mom was the strongest, most loving, selfless, amazing person that I knew.  She was loved and respected by everyone who knew her.  She devoted her entire life to her family (especially me, her only daughter).  I consider myself so very blessed to have been raised and loved by her for 27 years.  Every single one of my memories throughout life somehow involves her.  She made sure to be there for everything and she knew me like nobody else does, from my childhood to adulthood and all the stages in between.  Because of her guidance and unconditional support, I am the person I am today.

My mom was such a huge part of me.  I now feel this painful hole in my heart that will never again be filled.  I am trying to stay strong and positive, just as she would want me to.  I just know that the angels are rejoicing in heaven because my mom is finally happy and free from the pain of this world.  I try to imagine my mom and my grandma up there smiling and laughing as they watch the rest of our lives.  Please pray for my family.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I only met your mom a handful of times but I remember she was so sweet and she loved you so much. This post was a lovely tribute to her. Thank you for sharing it. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Please don't hesitate to let me know if you ever need anything!
    Love, Jenni
