In Loving Memory of My Mother

The tribute my sisters and I put in the paper.

March 27, 2010 at my Mother's grave

March 27, 2009 is the day that forever changed my life. My sweet and precious Mother, passed from this world into the spirit world. I will never forget the horror and shock of that day. I cannot even express the anguish I felt. Now, a year has passed, and I still miss my Mother. I will miss her every single day for the rest of my mortal life. But now I try to look back on all the beautiful memories that I have with her. She loved me so much!! I don't think any one loves you, in this life, quite like your Mother. No one can take her place!! I am so thankful to the Lord for sending me the choicest of Mothers!! I am so thankful for the comfort and peace of the Savior. I am so thankful for this gospel and the knowledge that we can be together forever, if we live worthy! I am thankful for my testimony of this gospel! I look forward to the day when I can reunite with my Mother!! Until then, I will have my memories, her loving example, and the great love she has for me to get me through. Mother, I love you so much!!!

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother."
-Abraham Lincoln

What a wonderful tribute to your Mother! I love you...and I love her! As my Dad used to say to me when I was distraught, "Honey, be of good cheer!" Now I say to you, Bonnie, "Be of good cheer...your Mother still lives, and she still loves you!" Enjoy & treasure your memories; they will see you through many a rough spot through the years, and you will always have them!

I know you haved struggled this last year with the loss of your Mother. The gospel of Jesus Christ and his plan of happiness truly does see us through these difficult losses in our lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I love you!
