    My Mom passed away on 3/4/03 from lung cancer at age 83 & I still miss her oh so much. I have this poem that was sent to me in 2003 at Christmas that I would like to share with all of you.
    My Mom used to call me her Earth Angel when she was going through her treatments & always would say what a true blessing it was that she decided to have a 4th baby at age 37! When my Mom was going through her treatments in 2002/2003, I used to always say to her "I love you more" & she would always say to me "I love you much". Now my friends always say "I love you much" to me...Her final words to me a few days before she passed away were "I love you much".
    Merry Christmas, Mom...I love you more.
    Your Earth Angel, Carla

    A Poem From Mom

    I still hear the songs
    I still see the lights
    I still feel your love
    On cold wintry nights.

    I still share your hopes
    And all of your cares
    I'll even remind you
    To please say your prayers.

    I just want to tell you
    You still make me proud
    You stand head and shoulders
    Above all of the crowd.

    Keep trying each moment
    To stay in His grace
    I came here before you
    To help set your place.

    You don't have to be
    Perfect all of the time
    He forgives you the slip
    If you continue to climb.

    To my family and friends
    Please be thankful today
    I'm still close beside you
    In a new special way.

    I love you all dearly
    Now don't shed a tear
    Cause I'm spending my
    Christmas with Jesus this year.

    I think this says about what I'd say to my mother. Beautiful work, my friend.
