Long overdue

One of the main reasons, besides seeing family, that I wanted to go to Mesquite was to see the marker that my extended family made for my mom. She died 15 years ago and I still haven't been to the spot where she died to see the marker that they made for her. It was a hard thing to do. When I got there and looked around I could just picture in my head what happened. I could see it in my mind so clearly that it was super hard. I am so glad that I went though. I am so glad that I have the memories that I have of her, and that I know that she is watching over me and I will see her again someday. Its what gets me through some days.

The marker. It says her name, her birthday and her death day




What was also amazing is that there were actually two other markers there to mark two other people that had died at that same location.

It was way hard. I never had the picture in my mind before because I hadn't seen the place that it happened. It all came rushing on me at once. It must have been horrible. I'm really glad that my sisters were there to help me hold it together.
Love you!

That would be very hard. I'm sorry for your loss. She is looking down on you and you will see her one day. Can I ask how she died? If you do not want to share that is just fine, I have wondered what took her way from you.

She died because of a drunk driver. She was in the car and didn't have her seat belt on and he must have been speeding and they took a corner to fast and rolled and she was ejected from the vehicle. They said that she died immediately.
