I can’t believe that my Mom has been gone for nine years! It truly seems like just last week that I produced this video below, with the help of my son Jason, for her “Celebration of Life”.
Mothers are faithful companions and confidants even in the most difficult times. Mothers dedicate their lives to caring and providing for their children both physically and emotionally. They always seem to know how to help them to overcome problems and thrive in spite of them. A mother’s love is irreplaceable, which makes losing her to death an incredibly painful experience. While sons and daughters of all ages carry within their hearts a dull and lasting ache where they once felt love and security, it is important they continue searching for the happiness their mother always desired for them.
The following poem sums up my feelings on this ninth anniversary of my Mother’s passing.
If Roses Grow in Heaven
By Dolores M. Garcia
If roses grow in heaven,
Lord please pick a bunch for me,
Place them in my Mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her,
and when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
but there’s an ache within my heart
that will never go away!
TIL WE MEET ON THE OTHER SIDE, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A HOLE IN MY HEART!
