Mom, still thinking about you

August 21, 2003 is the day my mom passed away. Life has never been the same.


  1. yes..hugs. That is just so heartbreaking.

  2. I love you, Willie.

  3. Willie,

    I'm missing my sister Martha and a friend Linda, who both died too young from cancer (aged 58 and 60) in this last year.

    I also lost my mother last year, but she was 86, and died after a long and full life. We had several years to say our good-byes at the end.

    If it were not for the feeling of how random cancer is and unpredictable...Someday it will only take a pill for a cure.

    How can we send a rocket to the moon and not know more about the human body?

    Missing them makes me think about death and my own mortality...but my only real fear is that my laziness and procrastination may prevent me from making the most of the time I have on earth.

    A life well-lived is the important thing.
    I am sure your mother did that in spades, as mine did.

    Take care, Marilyn

  4. I completely relate, Willie.
    My mom passed New Year's '99 and as you said, life has never been the same.

    Hug. :-)

  5. That's a beautiful tribute to your mom. I know you still miss her, she was a force. xoxo : )

  6. Ah my heart melts.


Thanks for stopping by! :-)
