You never said I'm leaving, You never said Goodbye. You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still. In my heart I hold a place that only you can fill. It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn't go alone. A part of me went with you the day God took you home.

I love you mum, always and forever. Not a day has gone by that I do not think of you. The memories are many and i think of new ones each day. Sometimes its hard to get past the sadness of losing you, but am comforted and know I will see you again. You were a blessing to many and the world was a better place because you were in it. When I feel sad I will look outside and see a cardinal or smell the scent of my flowers on the deck, I know its a sign from you that you are still with me. You loved watching the birds and gardening. The lillies I planted for you years ago are starting to bloom. In fact last night when I let the dog out I looked down and they seemed to be "glowing" in the light. With lots and lots of love, hugs and kisses,
your daughter, Linda xxxx
