How was your journey to heaven? I miss you, I wish I could talk to you again, hold your hand, ride in the car with you to the store again. I miss all those happy times we used to have. You were the best mother anyone could ever have. I wish you were still here with me.
I remember one of the last days you were in the living room, and I held your hand and cried, I saw a tear run down your face
that made me very sad. I stayed with you for the rest of the night but then when I finally did go to bed after being up all night thinking of what you and me could do to bond for those last days, Dad woke me up and told me that you had passed on. I got out of the bed, shocked, and confused. I came to your bedside and I cried. I was waiting for Aunt Fra to come and get Kaity and me and bring us to Bayville. It was so confusing that day. I didn't think that you would die so fast and I felt awful that I did not know that all those months you were not well that you had cancer. I wish you would have told me Mom, I wish you would have let me know so that I could help you somehow.
At your funeral Mommy I held back my tears, I don't know why I did that Mom, but I cried more with Aunt Fra because she told it me "it was okay to cry." Aunt Fra helped me through the most difficult times of my life, just like you used to do when you were alive.
I really loved you Mommy and I know that you wanted the best for me. I hope, if you can somehow see this letter that you read it and talk to me and let me know that you are all right now.
Until I can see you once again, you will always be in my heart and I will never forget you.
Love your son
Personal Note From Donnie
It felt so good to write these words for my Mom on her
First Anniversary in Heaven.
She was the best person in my life, the greatest Mother a son could ever have. I was really devastated when she passed away, but my "Aunt Fra" help me through all the rough times when I needed someone to talk to. My aunt is always there for me and will always be there.
When I read her poetry I can really relate to what she is saying in the poem. She is now in the process of taking me in to live with her and help me strive to be a better person in life. I am sure my Mother would want me to be all that I can be and that is what my Aunt is doing for me.
I will be going to St. Dominic's School in September and I am so excited to be going to a new school and sharing new experiences and striving to be the best that I can be so that all my family can be proud of me. That is what I want to strive for.
I love you Mommy and I love Aunt Fra and I know that you will always be with me and that I can always be sure that you are watching me from a special place in heaven. Although I would truly rather you with me I know that you are always in my heart.
Thank you Aunt Fra for letting me have this special page on Mommy's website. You guys were the best people in my life and I will never forget that and I will make you proud of me. I will always miss my Mom, but I want all of my family to be proud of me and this is my best chance to do that in memory of my Mom.
Thank you for taking the time to read and share my thoughts with me. I hope that all those children who have lost their Mom or Dad will realize the sadness of it but know that they are always in our hearts and in our spirits. That's what my Aunt Fra always tells me and now that is what I truly believe.
