This page is dedicated to my mother, Mary, who was my BEST FRIEND.
She was diagnosed with cancer on July 21,1998 and died on August 18, 1998.
We never really had a chance to say goodbye to each other and I never reallyhad a chance to thank her for all she had done for me!This page is my tribute to her and that sincere thank you. Thanks, Mom!
THE BEST MOTHER IN THE WORLD
I love you Dear Mother
with all of my heart.
It hurts me so deeply
to know we are now apart. It happened so quickly
like a summers night rain. How could we have known
it would all come to an end.
My Best Friend you were
in more ways than one.
We were always together
living each day as though we were one.
"Joined at the hip,"
that's what they would all say.
How could a mother and daughter
act in such an unusual way?
We thought the same thoughts
and shared the same fears.
We giggled and laughed
and wiped away each other's tears.
How could I ever repay you
for all you have done?
My friend til the end....My One In A Million, Mom
I know we'll both be together
in heaven one day
and you'll be there to greet me
in your old familiar way.
We'll laugh.....We'll smile.....
Then you will say, "Come on in and join me.
I've been expecting your stay!"
But until that day comes,
I want you to know
that your the BEST MOTHER IN THE WORLD
and I still Love You So!
I am home in Heaven, dear one.
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over.
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
HER JOURNEY'S JUST BEGUN
Don't think of her as gone away...
Her jouney's just begun.
Life holds so many facets...
This earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting from
the sorrow and the tears.
In a place of warmth and comfort,
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing,
that we could know today.
How nothing but our sadness can
really pass away!
And think of her as living in the
hearts of those she touched.
For nothing loved is ever lost...
and she was loved so much!
For all those, who have suffered the loss of a motheror any other loss, my heart goes out to you and your family.In those darkest days and hours, I found great love and support fromthe wonderful people at
GROWW. They have comforted me and supportedme, and I know they will be there tosupport you. Please visit their beautiful web site.
