Dear Mom


My dear mom passed away this morning.
You will be deeply missed. Love you.

She was a talented quilter, and I will always remember sitting together with her working on our quilts. I am so greatful for all the good memories.

Saying for today:
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
love leaves a memory no one can steal.
~From a headstone in Ireland

Leanne said...

My thought are with you Hugs from Australia.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
