Dear Mama: I miss you! Last Friday was our last time together. When you took your last two breaths, my heart dropped—feeling your body going stiff in my arms and laying motionless on the bed. The first time in my life without you! Telling Lissa 15 minutes later that you passed before she gave you the shot of morphine. I prayed to God at your bedside two minutes after you were gone thanking God for giving me the best mother a son could ever have. Thanking God that he took you, and your suffering was over! I could no longer pray that God keeps you here like I did many days after you came home from the hospital. Mom, you were always my hero and best friend, encouraging me to do my best and never give up! There are not enough words I could put on paper about how I feel about you. Mama, thank you for always being there for my sister and me. Think you for sacrificing so much for us. I remember there was a time we didn't have much food in the house, but you always found a way to come up with a meal. Mama, you were never a woman of luxury! I can't remember you buying yourself anything expensive, but you would make sure I had a new pair of Air Jordans when they first came out because you love me! Mama, I know there were times I upset you, made you cry, and even said I hate you! You would wait for me to cool down and say let's talk! Your comeback was I love you, son! Mama, thank you for showing me how to overcome anger and hate with love! Thank you for being the mother my friends wish they had. I will miss talking to you, hugging, and kissing you on the cheeks. Saying I love you! I will never forget the best day in my life when you decided to obey the gospel and were baptized for the remission of sins! I will never forget the Joy on your face knowing that you have obeyed God's plan of salvation and not men! When you took your last breath last Friday, I rejoiced in my heart, knowing that the angels carry you to Abraham's blossom to suffer no more. Mama, you are at rest now, waiting for the second coming of Christ and the physical bodily resurrection. I know you got the house you always wanted! My goal is to live faithful to the word of God and be there with you one day! I love you, mama! Me and Lissa will be good. Thank you!
