I have been thinking about this past week and I was just sooooo sooo busy with doing our yard, helping Linda with theirs and going up to Greg and Alis for mothers day that I totally forgot to post about my mom for mothers day. As many of you know my mom died when I was 15. She was killed by a drunk driver. So for 7 years mothers day was not a fun day for me. Then I became a mom and it was better, but still not the best of holidays for me to celebrate. My mom wasn't a "regular" mom. She was my best friend. She was the most amazing person I ever knew. I remember on a weekends her coming into our room with her 6pack of beer to drink and we would stay up all night listening to music and just talking. That is the best memory I have of her. I don't really have a memory of her being a "mom". She was more like a cool friend that I always got to see. I miss her sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!! As I write this I am balling in fact. I wish my kids were able to meet her. She never got the chance to be a grandma. She died 5 months before my sister gave birth to my niece. She would have made and awesome grandma. This picture was taken I believe right before I turned 15 in May and she died in September, so this is the last picture we got together. I love you mom and can't wait till we are together again and we can sit down and have a drink and listen to music all night long.

Perhaps your Mom is now caring for your neice that has also gone to that special place. Live life the best you can so you will be worthy to be with her eternally. You are a very sweet daughter in-law and i send all of my love to you.

Oh man Lace, now I'm bawling. She was the best mom ever. We will see her again. She is definately taking care of Nicki and making sure she knows everything there is to know about all of us before we get there.
