Today marks ten years since Mom died.

Time flies when you're having fun.

And we are, Mommy.

Wow, that's hard to believe! Ten years.

I think about Mom fondly all the time. But as I told Rich today, I wouldn't wish her alive again -- it was her time to move on and be out of pain...

I think she knows we still love her -- and that we're very happy people. (smile)

Thanks for recalling this. It's interesting that I was talking about her death at work today!

Yep. I'll never forget that I was called out of an officers meeting to hear that she had passed. And, of course, I already knew before I picked up the phone.

It seems like yesterday. And it seems like a century ago.

No, I would not wish her alive again. I just want that one-way cell phone to call heaven.

Events like that have a habit of slipping away so quickly into the annals of time don't they?

I am willing to bet your Mother was a wonderful person,and am sure she is very happy with what you all have accomplished in your lives and the awesome people you continue to be! :)

May she always rest in peace. ♥

Y'know, Mom really was a special person. She was loved by so many people, and I guess that's a sign of how special she was.

I wish I could say she had the gift of being happy, but I tend to think there were so many things in her life that were dissatisfying. I *do* believe she was happy about her children and realized at the end of her life that we were doing okay. (The last thing I got to tell her was that the cardiologist had given me a clean bill of health.)

Mom still lets her feelings be known, when the crazy grandfather clock she gave us chimes at odd hours. We always feel like she's trying to tell us something.

Thanks, Deanna!

Marilyn that's the best thing you could ever say to her.

A few weeks after my mom died I was looking out of the window and thinking of her and it was as if I heard her say, "be happy"; I felt that she had told me this, at that very moment.

Mom still tries to talk to us through the crazy, random chiming of her grandfather clock. Not sure what she's saying, but it's nice to hear it from time to time.

(I'd like to have had that one-way cell phone to heaven when I was baking cookies this Christmas! I had a couple questions about her recipes.)
