Thanksgiving 2016. Memories like this will last for ever. Jennifer, me, and Mother busy in the kitchen.
It's so hard to believe my Mother is no longer here with us. Just one month ago she called me and said, "I need you here. Can you come here now? Can you hurry? I said "Yes, Mother, I'm on my way. She breathed a sigh and said, " Oh Thank God! Ok, I love you! Be careful but Hurry!"
I miss her more than words can ever say and I'll continue to miss her every day of my life.
Alzheimer's is a mean evil disease. It stole her memories, it stole her beautiful mind. But it never stole her ceaseless ability to love and forgive!
Mother taught me how to pray, she taught me God's Word, she taught me the way to heaven.
I will forever miss & love you, Mother! I know we will meet again! Soon! Maranatha
With everlasting Love, Gratitude, and Respect, Your loving daughter Diana & "son" Dave.
