    Mommy…my heart is broken that you are gone, and I will feel your absence every minute of every day for the rest of my life. Your suffering has ended and you are back with your sweetie and the others that you loved and missed so much, and I know that it’s all happiness and love where you are now. Thank you for raising me into a strong, loving woman and thank you for loving me unconditionally. My hope is that the 18 months we got to spend together was a happy time for you; it was true honor for me. I am so thankful for the time we had and I’d do it again a hundred times, just for you. I love you so and I’ll miss you always.

    I want you to know that I took the best care of you that I possibly could, but that I struggle with wondering if I did a good enough job. I am trying to give myself grace and be at peace with it all but I’m not quite there yet.

    Alzheimers stole you from me long before death did, but I miss having my momma here with me all the same. Life has not gotten easier for me since you left and I miss the days when I was able to come to your house, lie on your couch and just forget that everything sucked because I was “home” and my momma was there.

    We will be moving soon from the house where you lived with us for so long. It’s a new beginning that we have no choice but to be ready for, but of course I will take you with me wherever go.

    You are loved and missed but I am so thankful for your peace and happiness on the other side. Love you always, mommy.

    your daughter

    You are truly living your best life where you are now. Continue to be happy and well and free, momma.

    Some days I miss you so much I can barely breathe. You just had a birthday and that day was a hard day for me. I would give anything to be able to cook you a nice dinner and bake a cake for you on your special day again. I just know you had a perfect day where you are now, with dad and your parents and Cory and everyone else. Probably the best birthday ever! Mama, please come and be with me every now and again. I need you. I love you with all my heart and I miss you every second of every day.
