In Loving Memory of "Nanny"
June 6, 1952 - January 7, 2005
This day 5 years ago, my mother lost her battle with cancer!! This day 5 years ago, I watched my mom take her final breaths and finally be at peace and out of pain!! This time 5 years ago, I laid my head in my mommy's lap and cried and she started her journey to Heaven..... family and her best friend at her side; praying in her ear as she died!! This time 5 years ago, we were making funeral arrangements...
I feel cheated...I feel she was cheated on life!! She didn't get the chance to grow old and watch her grandchildren graduate, start careers, get married etc... She didn't get the chance to grow old with me!!!
5 years and it doesn't get any easier..... time does NOT heal the wounds; it only makes me learn to live with it!!
I miss you more than words can describe!! You were the BEST mom in.this.world. You were my best friend, comforter, confidant, advice giver, "on call" medical help, shopping buddy, best cook, favorite sleepover buddy and the best Nanny to my children --You made me who I am today; and I pray that I will be half the woman, mother, co-worker, daughter and friend that you were!!
Love you honey,
