Condolence & Memory Journal

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. My deepest sympathies go out to you and your family.

My mom, my best friend, my teacher, my confidant. You taught me so much. Your passing was so sudden, not expected at all. Such an unbelievable shock. I know you missed dad so badly, it was only 2 yrs. Of his passing. I know your heart and soul missed him so much. I still can't believe your gone.I wake up sometimes forgetting your not here, thinking I have to call mom today, but the phone remains untouched. I keep thinking every time the phone rings it might be you, but forgot once again. I miss you so much! It's only been 4 days since you passed, it's been so hard. But I do believe dad came to get you. Your love was endless to each other. Rest peacefully beautiful mother of mine. You will be forever in my heart & wonderful memories. We will see each other some day soon. I love you to eternity and back your very grateful daughter, Dawn April
