Today my Mom would have been a beautiful 55 years old. Words can never adequately express how much or how deeply I miss her. She was more than just my Mom, she was my best friend. It was this day one year ago that she found out she had 3 months to live. 3 weeks later she was gone. Those last 3 weeks of her life are so vivid in my mind and I find myself reliving each day as I reflect on what happened last fall. She loved the fall. This picture is from 3 years ago when we went to Disneyland with her. She was a real trooper, even though she had started chemo and her hair was falling out in chunks all over the park! We are getting ready to go to Disneyland again next month and we are really looking forward to it. We are so glad we had the opportunity to have Mom and Dad come with us last time. Happy Birthday, my dear, sweet, spunky, beautiful Mom.
