Condolence & Memory Journal

Mom - Simply the best! I remember when I was a little girl I would never leave your side, you were my protector. You always told me it was ok as I grew up and became more independent. I knew I could count on you for anything. You always said to me "You can do anything just give it your best". When I introduced you and dad to Rob you were both so happy to meet him. You made him feel like he was part of the family immediately. Rob and dad hit it off right away. When I had my first child, Jonathan, both you and dad helped me when he was hospitalized, and when I had my second child, Cameron, you and dad where there helping me again. When I had my 3rd child, Robert, dad was sick but you still helped whenever I needed you.
Both you and dad taught all of us that Family is the most important thing and to always be there for each other. You and I did a lot together. We would call each other every morning and plan our day of taking my kids to school then we would go shopping and have lunch together. The day would always end at your house having a cup of tea. I'm going to miss our tea times together and calling you everyday, but I know you're with dad and he is holding you so tight. All of us kids will continue the family traditions you and dad always had and will forever be grateful for all you and dad have done for all of us Love You Mom! xoxo

PS - Give dad hugs and kisses for me.
