The last time I saw my mom was in February of 2004. She came for the birth of my 2nd daughter, Amelia. It had been a problem pregnancy and we weren't sure Amelia would live long after birth. My mom spent almost 24 hours on a train, through snow, sleet and rain just to come and be with me. She stayed for almost a month after Amelia was born to help take care of us. It was one of the most loving things my mom had ever done for me. I will never forget that time.
I know that it would probably almost kill my mom to know that her oldest daughter is fighting breast cancer. Perhaps it's better this way...that she isn't here to have to deal with this. Either way, I miss her so much.

Eternal Rest Grant Unto Her O Lord, And Let Perpetual Light Shine Upon Her. May She Rest In Peace. Amen.
