Tribute to my mom...

My mother passed away a little more almost exactly 5 1/2 years ago and I miss her greatly. She warmed the world with her smile...  She was kind, and believed that you should never say anything bad about everyone. I miss her greatly, as do my five siblings and father; scores of cousins, aunts and uncles, along with her many friends. She brightened everyone's worlds.

So this card is for you, Mom. You helped me become the mother I am; I have often looked to your words for dealing with my own children. I miss you horribly.

Happy Mother's Day to everyone. And thank you to my children, who are so sweet and have worked so hard to make this a special day for me!

Awesome tribute - I said "Farewell" to my mom 2 years ago as she joined my father - I miss them both tremendously.

Beautiful card! My mom would have loved it -- yellow was her favorite color.

It'll be 10 years in July that my mom will have been gone, and I still think of her and miss her every day.

Very pretty card....your tribute sounds like you are talking about my Mom. She was an awesome woman and I miss her dearly. It's was 5 years in January (on my birthday in fact) ago that she joined our heavenly Father.

Wonderful Pat.I understand. This is my first Mother's Day without my Mom. Like you Mom, my Mom was a joy to everyone around her. She was a great animal lover and crafter so I what I am today because of her.

I couldn't have said it better, Pat - thank you. It will be 11 years on July 4 since my mom died and I miss her more each day. So, to those of you who can, spend time with your mom, enjoy her and love her all you can - they leave all too soon.
