To those that are gone:

Long live your legacy, far past the tides of life and death resides something more vast, and it lives through one’s children, continues to be fruitful, bountiful - a blessing to the masses, a blessing to me. In this lives in mortality-It is legendary. Long live your legacy.

My mother will always be the best person I have ever known; if I could be half the person she was, I would have been a good man. The sunshine of her life does not stop shining because of the twilight of her time with us here. The light of her resides within us all. I will love her forever; one day we will walk together in grace.

The heavens and the angels rejoice, I am certain, to finally have her. She wiped away my tears and now I wipe away hers. Always loving me unconditionally I do her. The word truly a miss with out her. I love you mom.
