Dear Mother, to you who gave me the best present ever, the gift of life, I will never forget all of the unconditional LOVE you have given me. You already know that I LOVE YOU with all of my heart, it was when I had to live my life and be a woman that we missed each other the most. I will never forget you, because the day you left me, you took a big piece of my heart with you. God took you from those who love you most. He took you to his kingdom where you are with your parents. I’m sure you’re happy and free of the pain and suffering. Although my heart aches for you to be here with me, I find peace in knowing you can be whenever you are needed now. Watch over us always and forever you will stay in our hearts. The many nurses and doctors who cared for you, may God be with them. Show them their greatest inner abilities. You, Mom are so very loved and deeply missed by us all. But know in our hearts you live! Forever. I love you, Mom.
