It took me a while to say and write this because my heart hurts so bad. My Mama passed away September 20, 2022 and I have been crying everyday because this is a different type of hurt. It took me a while to figure out why would she leave this earth on my wife’s birthday. At first, I was confused then I came to the realization that she knew I would be sad for the coming years and felt if it’s on a day when I am supposed to be celebrating my wife it won’t hurt that bad. My First Lady and My Last Lady are now connected forever. I can not think of one without the other.
She raised 5 sons, and had been married for 38 loving years. My mom was the most caring, kind, sweet, and funniest woman you could sit down and talk to. Her laugh was contagious and her smile would brighten anyones day. But above all she always put others before herself. For the past 13 years she has been battling a disease called Polymyositis. A disease which caused inflammation throughout her body and deteriorated the muscles. On top of this condition my mom had a heart issue. All of this caused her to be wheelchair bound and fully dependent on her husband. Watching her get worse each and everyday hurt so much but finding out after she passed that she was rejected for life insurance due to her conditions was devastating. It took me a while to come to put my pride aside and accept that we need help to make sure my mom has a proper Homegoing. All I can say is if you can donate anything it would be truly, truly appreciated.
