Dear Mom


I never knew that I’d have room in my heart for two mothers, until I met you.  In such a short time you worked your way into mine.  You welcomed me with open arms.  I always felt accepted by you.  It was an honor to be your daughter-in-law.

We always looked forward to visiting Texas and being greeted at the airport by your smiling face and your hugs.

We took a walk with dad tonight along the river.  I imagined what it would have been like if you’d have been along.  I pictured you and I sitting on those benches overlooking the river, while Duane & dad continued to walk.  I imagined how wonderful it would have been to sit and chat – to have another conversation with you.

We wanted so badly to be able to celebrate you today – to send you one of Duane’s home-made cards that you delighted in receiving.  We’re having to learn a new way of celebrating you now that you’re gone.  It’s a hard way and it hurts.  Choosing to celebrate your life, reminds of us of what we are missing – but we choose celebrating anyway – you’re worth it.

Love you & miss you.  Your daughter, Lucy
