Welcome to My Personal Page
“I am fooling only myself when I say my mother exists now only in the photograph on my bulletin board or in the outline of my hand or in the armful of memories I still hold tight. She lives on beneath everything I do. Her presence influenced who I was, and her absence influences who I am. Our lives are shaped as much by those who leave us as they are by those who stay. Loss is our legacy. Insight is our gift. Memory is our guide.” ~Hope Edelman
Tribute to my mom from my daughter, Sarah...
Grammy, I wish, with all my being, that I could see you one more time. That I could sit beside you, hold your hand, and tell you I love you. And though I know that you are gone now, I hold my memories of you close to my heart. I am so incredibly lucky to have grown up with your strength, your calm, and your love as some of the guiding influences of my life. I close my eyes and remember the aromas of family meals at your house and knowing that your cookies will always be the best,. I think of the art projects and games and road trips filled with the excitement of being on my way to see you. I think of your incredible spirit and I remember my hand, in yours, and how safe I always felt with you. I don't now if I said it enough, but your drive, your determination, has always inspired me and helped me to know that I could do or be anything I want. We are a family of strong women and that doesn't happen without you. I know that in the years to cone you will still be with me. I will always love you.~Sarah
