Oh mother how I miss you. You were my best friend, I don't know what to do without you. I promise that I will carry you in my heart forever and your memory will NEVER be forgotten. Your grandchildren and great grandchildren will know about you, I will not let them forget, I will tell them stories for many years to come. If I am still around when you have great-great grandchildren I will tell them about you and how much you would have loved them as well. I just want my mommy back but I know you were so tired from all the illness and that you were in so much pain. You aren't in pain anymore, you are free! I love you always & forever. - Your first born, your one and only daughter. I love you so much. I miss you so much. I will always carry you with me. Rest in peace mother.

I'm going to miss those special dinners we would go to on birthday's, and mother's day mommy. I'm going to miss every single thing about you. I'm going to love you always & forever. I will carry you with me every single day of my life. I don't know why you had to leave but you did and I must find a way to accept that. Someday I will, just not today.
