This is a letter a wrote to my sisters when my mother died. We had lost our father 10 years before, we lost our mother. I was only 35 and both my parents were gone.

To: Lynda, Joan, Nancy, Faite, and Pam

Your mother is your guardian, your teacher, one of your spiritual guides, your best friend and your worst enemy. There are many women who, will come into your life after she is gone. To replace each of the roles that she played in your life. You need so many because, no one person could ever replace the void that her being gone will leave in your life.
Mom, it’s the hardest role for anyone to play. You must love and guide your children. But, you must also set them free (the hardest thing in the world to do). You guide them and hope they make the right choices. But, if they don’t, the one person they can always depend to be there, to help pick up the pieces is MOM. (And in my case DAD, than when he died, it was mom).
They have guided us all well. They have taught us to be strong, to speak our minds, in our own way. To love all mankind. To always be ourselves, no matter what that may be. They taught us to be free in our own spirituality. They taught us, that no matter how bad things look for us, there is someone worse off. So, be thankful, for what you have. And, always give to those who have less than you. Even if, all you can give is your time.
Now that we are all grown and have found our own ways, we must let them both go. So that they can be together again. They both love us all very much. And, believe in all of us. And, just because, they have pasted, doesn’t mean, that they aren’t still looking over all of us. It just means now, they can watch us all at the same time.
So now we must let them both go. He has waited for her long enough. Now, they are together again. And, we all know that, that was when they were their strongest. And, that is why they will be together forever.

Love and protection forever their youngest,

I was 34 when my father died and my mom came to live with my first wife and me along with our three sons. She lived with us for 9 years before passing away. My wife died 12 years later and I have since remarried. A mother's love is the greatest thing on earth. Blessings.

Kingwell, you are right a mother's love is a great gift. I have been blessed with one sweet son. I can only hope, that I live up to what my mother was to me, for him.
