Oh Mom, I miss you so much! I have fond memories of you. Here are a few that have come to my mind in the past few days:
One memory was when as a child (grade 3) in Cranbrook, B.C. I was very sick at home with a high fever. Mom, you would come to my bedside and rub my head as you would quietly hum a song. Eventually I would fall asleep from the soothing comfort and compassion that you showed to me during my sickness.

You were almost always at home when us kids came back home from school as we were growing up. When I was in grade 10 or 11 at South Peace High School, during the winter time, I was walking home carrying my tenor saxophone. I saw you walking toward home, but you were 2 or 3 blocks ahead of me. This was one of the first times that I felt genuine love for you Mom. As you walked in the distance, I couldn't run to catch up to you because I was carrying that heavy saxophone case. As I walked and watched you also walking toward home. I felt a deep love for you Mom.

Finally, near the end of your life, the 'tables have turned' and now you needed that care and attention. This was at the Foothills Medical Center and the Peter Lougheed Medical Center. during the past two months, you were helpless and needed my help and the help of the medical team to feed and care for you. I rubbed your head to sooth you as you were taking your final breaths.

As I read over your old copies of OUR DAILY BREAD, I noticed that you had taken a pencil and written this phrase on random pages; "God is good to me". In spite of the difficulties that 'life' threw at you and the terrible dementia that took away your ability to reason and think, you clearly still kept your faith in God. Mom, this encourages me to do the same.

I love you Mom,
