How do I say goodbye to such an amazing Mother, confidant and best friend…I can’t, just that I’ll see you in my dreams with Dad. Our Mother is one in a million, who stood strong in her faith as a devoted Catholic woman. Her bedroom adorned with her statues of saints, the Virgin Mary, crucifixes, beautiful rosaries she hung on pictures of the Virgin Mary, Jesus and the different Popes we had during her lifetime. It truly was like walking into a homemade church in her bedroom. It showed her devotion and love for God. I thank the Lord that we were able to bring her home so she could be surrounded by all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren in the place she created with my father. A home that created thousands of memories for the entire family to cherish, it was only fitting for her to leave this world where she felt the most love and surrounded by her living legacy. She left a mark on this world and a bigger mark in our hearts. She taught us to be strong, believe in who you are, be loving, compassionate and above all to show forgiveness. She was my touchstone. We were blessed to have such an incredible role model in our lives. The last card I gave my Mom was for Christmas and I’m so glad that I thanked her for instilling in me her fiery spirit, love for God and how blessed I’ve been to call her my Mom. I miss you sooo much Mom, but know that you’re truly at peace now. I love you Mom, Rest in Paradise with Dad and please keep an eye on us from above. 💜✝️🙏
