Dear Mom,

We were in each others lives for over 45 years. I couldn’t have made it without you. You are incomparable and irreplaceable.  My broken heart still mourns for you… But on Mother’s day I promise to honor you and do something that we would do and to smile doing it!

Here are 45, plus one for good luck, reasons I love you! (Wish you lived till I was 90, cause I wouldn’t have run out!)

Every day has always been mother’s day for me mom, because that is what you deserved… but the literal day was extra special because it meant something to you…

You will always be MBPM… I wish I could have done so much more for you!  But today isn’t about that.  It’s about honoring you with a smile and with love… and honor with love and a smile I shall.  Happy Mother’s Day Momma…

We will be in touch…                                                                                                          Yes…                                                                                                                                                   I love you very much…

Before, now, and always… Love,
