I remember your mom from years ago. She was so funny and warm. I am so sorry for your loss - That the time has come to mourn. I miss my mom too And understand your grief. Keeping memories alive Is comforting to me. Her recipes saved, Tattered, torn and bent. Long ago memorized, But read once again. I find myself laughing aloud As her voice fills my head. I remember her expressions And words she often said. Keep her with you always Through the things she held close and dear. Then you will always feel That in some way she is still here.
