Yesterday my mom turned sixty years old sadly she was not able to be here with her children, grandchildren and her best friend. Life hasn't been the same since she's been gone everyday life just isnt the same anymore feeling that empty space deep inside waking up not being able to call her , waiting for her to call to see how she's feeling just to hear her voice. Life without mom is know alot more quiet no more gossip like there once was no more jokes to go with the gossip. With out my Ellie Mae life just isn't the same you are thee best most beautiful mom , grandma and person inside and out.Ellie Mae your daughter Jamie Amy really does love you very much is missing you like crazy everyday.
Knowing you ain't suffering makes it a little easier to accept the fact that you had gone through the pearly gates of heaven to be with your parents and loved ones that went to everlasting life before you.Still knowing all this that you are healed in nomore pain doesnt take that emptyness I feel deep inside. Feeling lost at times forcing myself to get up get ready start my days like I did when you where here. I do just because your not here I know, trust and believe your spirit is here with all of us. keeping your spirit alive is important to me and all your family that is why we celebrated your birthday wihout tears without arguments just enjoying your day like you would of celebrate your birthday with all of us. Happy birthday mommy aka Ellie Mae god bless.
