Mom,When I went to the house the day you passsed.I felt your spirit in your room.You are a wonderful Mom.I will miss your voice,your advice,and espically your sense of humor. But i will not miss the pain and sufering you was bearing.I know you are now pain free,By our Lord and Savior.I do not know how to explain my emptyness in my heart,all we have left is just remembering the good times.I did not see you Mom, as much the rest of my brothers and sisters.But i knew you were going to be there when i went home with a BIG smiles on your face and crackin some jokes.Here comes Christmas or boy you r getting fat ,then you would smooth it over by sayin you are so pretty.I do not know how to deal with not havin you Mom or Dad there when i come home.Mom you always said that we should show affection toward each other,you did not like us arguing with each other.My moms last wish was that we all stay close and dont pull apart.There was nothing you wouldn't do for anyone, espically your family!God please give us strength throu this bad dream.I'm going to miss you forever.I love you so much Mom!!Untill we meet again, Your Daughter Carol Sims
