It's been one whole year since my Mom died of Cancer.
I was by her side, holding her hand as the life left her on April 19 at 11:20. It feels like no time has passed but at the same time centuries have passed, Life for my Dad and I hasn't been the same since and even though the pain is some what faded it's still there and will likely never go away. It still hurts but I know it was for the best, she is at peace now.
Tomorrow we're going up to see her at her resting place and next week we are having a party in her honor, I hope that she knows how much we miss her and how much we still love her. I have been taking care of her garden but I am no gardener but it has not died yet so I am guessing that she is helping me with that.
It will be hard on my Nonie, no parent should have to outlive their child and Mom was her best friend. I have tried to help my Nonie any way I can, she tells me that "At least Melodi left me you", that alone makes it worth while.
To my friends that gave their support and kind words when I was going through this whirlwind last year, I want to say again thank you all so much. God Bless all of you.
I love you Mom, I always will.
