Happy Mothers Day in Heaven

Dear Mom,
Tomorrow is Mothers Day  – my 24th Mothers Day without you!  Although I can now get through singing “It is Well with my Soul” without tears, I confess that the mellow tones of a cello always makes my heart constrict a bit and I am taken back to those nights of falling asleep to the sound of you practicing for your next concert.  The memories are so very sweet!

Oh, how I wish you could see how your grandchildren have grown into fine adults and then meet your beautiful great-grandchildren (you have 40 in total from all of us and I’m not all that sure that’s the final number). But then again – maybe you already knew that!

Happy Mothers Day in Heaven, Mom! Thank you for loving us so very well.

  1. How old were you when your mom passed. This makes me sad for you. Was it a sickness or sudden? Gail

  2. I was 46 – she was only 71. It was lung cancer and she died within a week of her diagnosis. Kind of mind reeling at the time, but in retrospect she was spared a long chemo filled death. God was with us – and we are thankful for that!

  3. That was extremely quick after diagnosis. I know you would have wanted her to know her g’children. I wish you a Happy Mother’s Day. Wishing it filled with happy memories.
