My mom was the strongest, bravest person in the world.  She gave alot more than she got, but yet she never complained.  I cannot ever remember a time in my 30 years that she has not been there for me, or whoever needed her.  She left behind many broken hearts and dreams and plans, but I know she no longer hurts, and she is in the best of hands.  I am lost without my mom, she was my best friend and gave me the strength, courage and wisdom to live my life and take care of my family.  Somehow, we all must go on and live our lives just like she would want us to.  I cry for her every day, as we all do, but i feel her strength inside of me, trying to tell me to pull myself together, and that is what we all must find in ourselves.  i love you mom, with all my heart.  Thank you for loving me enough to make me the person I am.  I only pray I am half the mother and wife she was.......

Maw was a great person, a mom, grandma, even to those not of her blood, wife, and future great-grandma. I think she would want us to be happy right now. She won’t be in pain any longer; she is free. No more sickness, back pain, no more surgeries. But it’s ok to cry; I’ve done my share and then some. I’m sure there are others who have cried more than I have. It shows no weakness, but compassion.

In our tears let the wonderful memories of her flow with them. Times like when the electricity cuts off and she tells instead of cooking the hotdogs on the stove we can put them in the microwave.I told her she would never live that down. No one is ever really ready for these situations, no one could ever be fully prepared, but I think she is happy now.
We will always love and remember our Maw
