Mother was our life force. She knew when our individual worlds weren’t in order. She knew when we were hurting, she always knew when we didn’t present the truth of things to her. In all of these things she found the good in each of us and loved us for that. She prayed for us daily, and reminded us that we were her children, that we would not speak ill of people while in her presence, that we would not curse in her presence, We would show respect for anyone whom we had come to know in our lives. Mom knew that we were far from angels, but in her presence, we were who she taught us to be. There is no greater Love than that of a Mother, we will never forget the sacrifices that she made for us through her life and the Love which she bestowed upon us even in our worst days. We Love you Mom!!!!
