The special bond of Mother and child is written with love on their hearts and souls and make them a part of each other forever. ~ author unknown
Mom passed away on July 21st. 2010 at 6:20 p.m. at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance, CA.
Mom suffered a massive stroke that took her life. She left many who love her and will miss her deeply. Mom was a very special loving person. She was wise and comforting yet strong and graceful. Many of her friends and family would go to her when in need of comfort and advice. She loved life and loved dancing. In fact, that's what she was doing the night of her stroke. She was celebrating her best friends birthday, they danced, laughed and enjoyed the evening...so I know she enjoyed her life right up to the last minute.
I cannot even express the deep sadness I feel . . . mom and I were best friends, she knew how to calm me and point me in the right direction. I would always call her each and everyday to see how her day was, how she was feeling and to say goodnight . . . it's very strange that I cannot pick up the phone now to call her. I miss her very much.
