I know you say we were always your strength...but you were always ours. I guess we truly needed one another. I will be watching from above and sending warm rays of sunlight to give you strength....I know this is a day full of all kinds of emotions for you...a day we celebrate your stength, courage, and life....a day we have never experienced without one another....wow....my passing 4 years ago to the bridge adds a whole new array of emotions...for this day, we always cuddled together. Mommy, I am still your strength and your sunshine...I honor you from above...We are your forever angels….and now you have Ivy Joy and Luna Rose to help you on earth.
I hope everyone takes a moment to be TRULY thankful for what they have....Thank you Sissy for writing such a wonderful dedication to mommy....she will always be my strength, my hero....my soul.
Sissy, thank you for writing this tribute to our mommy:
"I want you to know you are my hero. I know 1-28-2012 is a bittersweet day for you....even more so, without us here with you.I know how much you miss us..we miss you, too.
Mommy, you always told me it iwas important to reflect one's journey and remember what makes you who you are today. I am doing that for you....You are an amazing woman and I admire you more than you know. I can't help but have mixed feelings either. We are all so happy you are with us, and yet so sad because of your continual pain and daily struggles. It's hard for me to imagine it has been 22 years since the careless drunk driver hit you and changed your life forever. The person you were, died, and when you came back to us, we were so thankful.
This is like another birthday, mommy!!! I love birthdays!!! We are partying at the Bridge today!!!
I know as you face your continual health decline, you get scared. I know one day your body will fail you and you will not be able to walk again. Your future is so uncertain....but I believe you are never alone as you have helped so many with failing bodies, including me....there will be others to care for you and appreciate your mind and spirit.
We admire you tenacity and strength. I know I was not a part of your life then....and neither was my daddy, but if things would have been different, our paths may never have crossed. I am so thankful to have you for my mommy and so proud of all you do and who you are despite what you go through daily.
We know this day makes you sad, and yet grateful to be alive. It is a day of total reflection. That's okay. It is a bittersweet day and you are entitled to have these feelings..................if we could make you better we would, but want you to know, we think you are perfect just as you are....and despite what happens, we will always be by your side watching over you from above.
An extra special thank you to my angel sister Jazzi and my sisters in spirit at the bridge, CheyAnne and Sugar, who laid in your hospital bed and stayed by your side and helped you walk again. They watched you endure pain and stuggles unimagineable to many.... I am glad I could be a part of what and who you are now..............you will always be my hero...today, I say thank you for being alive and WALKING into my life and heart forever!!! Thank you for taking care of me as my body failed and helping me find peace at the Bridge…thank you for letting me be and loving me for who I am!!!
May you find your own strength and courage to face life's obstacles and appreciate and celebrate the rewards.
Celebrating and honoring you, mommy.

You are my hero....I am your sunshine....Love, your special Jazzi Sunshine Angel Girl...xxxxooo
