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.
Smile you have a way of taking some of the most painful things and making a positive impact with of course... a SMILE.... Darlin (a scarce member here these days)lost her mom this year and she isnt taking it so well. I will take this to her and hug her as she falls apart, but she knows her mom is still with her everyday..
AWW.Smile that really touched my heart.. My mom passed away On Dec 3, 1995 of Lung Cancer at the age of 57. I too took care of her while she was ill. Christmas is very emotional for me. Thanks Smile...JJ
