54: Mom passed away February 6, 2013, We were called on February 5, 2013 we needed to come to the hospital mom has hours not days. I left work got a ticket to fly home February 6, 2013. I prayed to god to let us make it home before she passed. Dora and Evelyn arrived at the hospital at 1:00PM. I said to mom your girls are here, her eyes opened half way, she was breathing so hard with oxygen, I held her hand, her hands were so swollen. We will never forget the look on her face as she passed, tears came from her eyes, few more small breaths she was gone. Mom passed at 3:15PM. That being said GOD does answer prayers. Mom is in a better place, she is in heaven, what a blessing to have a mother such as her.
58: Mother The moment that you died My heart was torn in two, I often lie awake at night, when the world is fast asleep, I take a walk down memory lane, with tears upon my cheeks. Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday, but missing you is heartache that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain. Until the joyous day arrives, That we will meet again, I LOVE and miss you MOM.
