we had such hard times you and I. From the typical teenage angst to secrets that should have been kept they were so unbelievably painful.Being the oldest girl coming up in the '60's could not have been an easy task, the letting go was difficult for both of us. I don't think I ever really did. I never wanted to be very far from you and when we bought our first house it was with you in mind. In fact every decision that I have ever made has been with you in mind. I built my whole world around you...and pooof you were gone and I was left with a sorrow that I have never been able to fill. (and believe me I've tried everything) So many things left unsaid, like I love you, but I guess it doesn't matter now.
You were such a beautiful woman, tall and slender with that long wavy red head, you could have easily been a model but you were shy. You were by far the strongest, most stubborn,bull-headed, always right never wrong, apologize for nothing, hold tight to your faith, stand strong for what you believe, private, soft-hearted, gentle, slightly bi-polar, complicated, funny, and bossy woman ever to grace this earth and I am so proud to be your daughter. Everything about me good or bad is because of you mom. And that's just fine with me.
Thinking of you in my own special and unique way today with love. Love, love, love.
