In Sweet Remembrance of my Beautiful Mom ~ 1933 - 2010 ~



 
21 March 1933 ~ 21 July 2010
Unvergessin


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                             

It's hard to believe it's been three years since my beautiful mom, Elfriede Haf-Serafin, passed away . . . time passes quickly and as I have said all along, it still feels like yesterday . . . I guess it always will. 

What a mom she was though . . . I can't thank her enough for being the loving, wise, warm and giving mom she was to me. I sure wish I had asked those certain questions (as we all wished we had) so that I could have gotten to know her more as the great woman she was outside of being "mom" . . . but, I have been blessed with many years of beautiful memories of life with mom and that sustains me . . . thank you, mom. 

We miss her here deeply . . . we continue to keep her memory alive each day . . . her love and legacy lives through me, her grandchild, great-grandchildren and all who knew her . . . we love you mom . . . Schlaf gut . . . Schlaf in Himmlischer Ruh . . . .

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me ~ Place them in my Mother's arms & tell her they're from me ~ Tell her that I love & miss her, & when she turns to smile ~ place a kiss upon her cheek & hold her for a while ~ Because remembering her is easy ~ I . . . do it everyday ~ There's an ache within my heart that will never go away.     ~ Author unknown
