You provided for me an unconditional love that provides courage and comfort all at once. My wings were built from your heart and are entwined with your enlivening strength. And when you told me I could fly, it was impossible to doubt, because I have seen all that grows from being wrapped in your light. Guided by your love, I’m able to look beyond myself — holding on to your real life daily walk and carrying pieces of you wherever I go. You gave my heart a place to land and something to hold onto — I am because of you. Always and forever. Miss you every single day–I love you Mom.
