My mom, Eleanore Presby.
She made our home a place of comfort, safety and love, always.
I was thinking the other day what one moment would I want to have again with mom, if that were possible. There is not just one, I want them all. My top of the list favorites for just one more time would be moments that were special, moments that were so simple, nothing luxurious or fancy, just time together. When my dad would have a card game at our house, mom and I would walk to the Coral Gables Bus Terminal where there was a Howard Johnson’s Restaurant and have a fried flounder sandwich together. I loved watching her decorate a birthday cake and getting the coveted beater as a prize. Most of all, I loved seeing my mom, dressed always like a 1950’s TV star, vacuuming or maybe grabbing her grocery cart and walking to the grocery store – she didn’t drive and her and the two-wheeler cart always made me smile.
She is now gone from my life and I would just love one more moment to say, mom, I love you. I will miss you forever and am thankful to have been your daughter and, honored to have been given the privilege of being your protector, friend and phone buddy as life slowly pulled you away from me.
The name Eleanore translates to G_d is my light.
Mom, you have left a light in my life that guides me each day and lights my path through even this darkest moment.
May you always be at peace,
I love you,
