In Memory Of

Exactly nine years ago today (at roughly 9am), my mother took her last breathe with me holding her hand. I didn’t want her to die, but I knew it was time. The previous morning, she said her first words in many days. They were: “God Is Good.” Then later that night, I heard the death rattle. I’m not sure what came over me, but I picked up a bible and read quite a bit from Psalm to her. There is much to say about the events surrounding my mother’s death. Much I have learnt since her passing. But this is not the right time. Know that she was an incredible woman who sacrified a lot for her family and especially her children. I miss her daily.

  1. I hope you are doing ok today. Hugs sent off in your general direction.

  2. She gave you the greatest gift, her memory. We are lucky to have such people touch our lives!

  3. I held it together as best as I could today. I didn’t really tell anyone at training of the significance of this day for me. But I’m in tears now. This was not how it was suppose to be.
