3 years ago today my Mom died of pancreatic cancer. After 3 years I still remind myself to call her and then I remember I can’t. Time doesn’t seem to matter in this regard, I don’t think you get used to the person not being there completely.
We are going to all get together again on December 7th for her birthday and celebrate her life and toast her strength and maybe get a little tipsy in the process. In these pictures we were at the zoo in 2009 just a few months before she died and I did wheelies' with her in the chair and she pretended to get upset but she had this sly smile while I was doing it. I got away with stuff like that, I was the instigator of the family, she knew I would do something weird! This was our last family outing with her, we are all so happy to have been able to share some fun and laughter during her battle with cancer. She lost the battle but ultimately she taught us how to be strong and deal with the harsh realities that can happen in life.
Love you Mom!
December 7th 1940 – November 29th 2009
