Forever in my heart

Mother passed away this morning very peacefully. Her tremendous love, compassion, patience and understanding will be cherished forever. Good bye mother. I will miss you forever and will try my hardest to be someone you would be proud of.

I believe ANY mother would be proud to have you as a son.
I will be bringing you dinner one night soon.....and take care in the meantime....

Smithers said...

You are already someone that she would be proud of. You'll be a good son forever.

Having not yet gone through this process myself I can only guess what it has been like for you during this time. You've been a role model for me and I hope to handle myself with the same candor and bravery that you have clearly shown.

My condolences to you Ray, please let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

Ray,

I so sorry to hear that your mother passed away this morning. I truly understand how sad it is to lose a parent because apart of you is now lost too. Now that she is gone and in heaven she is able to see all those that she loved so much that had passed before her....so that's the good part.
Take Care and know that your mother still lives within you.

Ray,
I often think of that picture you took of your mom with the sunglasses. I forget what smart*ss comment you added, but it's made me laugh over and over. She was a spirited, wonderful woman.

It's a tough time of year to loose someone you love. You and yours are in my thoughts...
