REMEMBERING A LIFE

We are feeling a bit muted today and I thought this collage expressed how we are feeling. This is a day that is always hard for Tommy. His mother left 4 years ago today. She fought a brave fight that she had not learned about until it was too late to hope it would go back in the box.

From the time we had a diagnosis and the time she left was just a few months. She still lives with us. In the closet in my office. I chat with her a lot. As a mother in law, she was always there when I needed her and I admired how brave she was at the end. She became a mother at 16. A child raising a child. It wasn’t all champagne and roses. It was more struggle and heartbreak. But the man she gave birth to is the best man I know and for that I give her an A!

Sheryl, I hope you are somewhere fishing and playing the slots! Say hello to Daddy for me and I hope we’ve made you proud!
