In Memory of the Brooks Sisters

I gave the world 4 masterpieces and 2 have found a new home beyond the sky! Conceived in love, born with beauty and raised with dignity! Mothers aren't supposed to bury their children. They are supposed to kiss boo-boos, hug away fear, plan their wedding and witness the birth of their children! One second, two wrong moves and three of my family are gone. Was I prepared..NO! Never in a million years would I have thought my girls would depart so suddenly. I spent years loving and raising Shay and Jas. I was finally seeing how my parenting had groomed two amazing daughters! They were the best of me! The constant reminders of my hard work. They were 2 of the 4 people that made me proud! My daily heartbeats and my reasons for living! They were going to be there to help me remember all the small thing that my old age would make me forget. They should be calling me for recipes and relationship advice. I planned on them brushing my thinning hair. Planning my meals and telling stories of how tough I was when they were little. I have to accept that God needed them more than me. With my faith strong the loss of my girls still weighs heavy on my heart! I miss the sound of their voices and the warmth from their hugs! What's done is done so I won't pray for the impossible. My girls were my secret keepers, a source of strength and the very fiber of who I am! 1 man who decided to drink too much has changed my life forever! A mom protects her children but I was caught off guard. Trusting that night was no different from the countless nights before it!  The pain and struggle have not subsided. Each day I am reminded that I am 2 children short of the 4 children I brought into this world! I never knew how much I needed Shay and Jas until the space between us became unmeasurable! No one should have to experience this type of pain! The expenses have been a hard reminder of what I have lost! I need time and time requires money! Call me selfish or foolish but I want to spend every second with Shay's 2 yr old Jai. My sweet granddaughter who is thru no fault of her own.. an orphan! I look in her eyes and I see my daughter. Jai's smile comforts me like nothing else in my life! Her innocence encourages me to persevere! She is so wonderful and I am grateful that GOD gave me such a wonderful reminder of how successful I am as a mother! I am asking for your help! I can not do this alone! Your donations would go towards all expenses related to my girls. I pray I gain the strength to stand strong on my own but I need more time! I have to keep my daughters memory alive if for no other reason than Jai deserves to know her mom, dad and auntie didn't just abandon her! I know everyone won't be able to donate money and I want you to know your prayers for me are just as important. Ask God to guide me, keep me strong and make a way out of no way!
