Mom, I wanted to just take a small moment to say thank you for being my mom. Anyone could have given birth to me but only you could be my mother. The last couple of years was difficult but all the while you still maintained a love for Jesus and through him showed a love for me only a mom could have. Dad went home and we held each others hand and shared so many thoughts but we did what so many forget to do, we never let a day go by without saying I love you to each other. That was dad's requirement to close every day for as long as I can remember. Mom thank you so much for the life you and daddy gave me. You both taught me that no matter what life had in store for me to go through I had by the Grace and Mercy of God and the precious life redeeming blood of Jesus an answer for any question I had along my way. I have the blessed assurance that both of you as well as myself were saved by the blood and that because of what Jesus did, that made three nails and two pieces of wood a bridge to eternity that wont fail to get me and all that call on the precious name of Jesus safely home.
Mom it was an honor calling you mom. It was a blessing looking back to have had the honor and privilege to have tended to your needs and had your complete trust that out of my solemn love only a son can have I was graced with walking through this life with you. Well done Mom. Ill see you in but just a little while. I love you.
