Remebering Mom

My sweet precious mom passed away late last night as a result of complications from lung cancer.
My heart is broken and it aches beyond measure. The tears have been flowing and they just won't stop! I am just thankful she is no longer in any pain! She is now with her Savior and King-whole and painfree!Mom, I miss you so much! You fought a brave, courageous fight! I love you more than words can ever say and I am so sorry you had to suffer so. I know you though, you probably never let on just how much pain and suffering you were going through! Always thinking of others ahead of yourself. You so had a way of doing that mom!! I miss your dimpled smile and all your little quirks!! I am so thankful I had the chance to spend the week with you last December! It is a time I will cherish forever!! You made me laugh, you made me cry, but most of all, I was just able to share myself with you! We weren't able to do that much through the years. There were just too many miles separating us!
You were so beautiful then, and even more so now. Though cancer ravaged your body, your beauty shined through. I am so thankful for the memories I have! I will cherish them forever until the day when I am no more and share with you once again with Jesus in Heaven! I love you mom!!!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my father to lung cancer almost 5 years ago and it is a horrible, disgusting disease. And I know the strange sense of almost-relief when it's over because you know the pain they were in.
