    Mom, I miss you!! So many times I think of picking up the phone to call you only to realize I can’t. It seems surreal. I hope that you felt the love that was surrounding you with each person who came in your room to visit. First you were my mom, but always you were my friend and I love you! May you now rest in peace and may you be happy basking in the light of God’s loving presence. Love, Linda
