Dear Mom,
I can't believe that I'm sitting here writing this. I knew that this day would come eventually, but not this soon. I've been struggling a lot this week, mostly with questions and guilt. So many things have been going through my head, did I see you enough? Was I there for you when you needed me? Did we do everything we possibly could before we had to let you go? Throughout this week I've been blaming myself, thinking the answers to all those questions were no. Thinking that what if I did this, or said that. It took me until this morning, the day we come to see you one last time, to finally accept that there was nothing more that could have been done. Since dad has been gone, you haven't been the same. You were still with us mind and body, but your heart was gone. He truly was the love of your life, and as painful as it is to let you go, I know that you are finally whole again with him. Happy and at peace. I've been thinking back to the memories I have with you and I realized that even though you're gone I will never lose those. Jenea had told me a story the other day that she had heard from dad. He told her that when we were born we came out with bruises all over us, like we had been fighting. I feel like we were fighting each other, not because we didn't love each other, but because we both couldn't wait to get out and see you for the first time. Luckily I won and was the first one that got to meet you. I was thinking back to when we were little, and the countless baseball, basketball, softball games you had attended. I don't think you missed one. I remember when we used to go to amusement parks and when I wasn't tall enough to go on the rides, but Jenea was, you sat with me and made me feel better even though I was crying my eyes out. I was thinking about times I was sick, and you used to rub my head and lay with me until I fell asleep. I remember when night time came and I was so scared of sleeping alone I used to come sleep on the floor next to your bed because being next to you just made me feel safe. We used to go to the movies together, just me and you, and they were some of the fondest memories I have, especially when we went to see Anaconda and we both seemed to jump at all the same parts.The most recent memory of you smiling and having a great time is when Dorian and I had come to visit you at home, and even though it was the first time you guys met, you talked to her like you knew her forever. She fell asleep for a while, but once she opened her eyes you were at it again, telling her so many stories. Then we finally convinced you to let us take you out for dinner at Maggie Mc Flys where you completly destroyed your hamburger, and had to eat it with a fork and knife. You were talking to random people, that you had never met, and I remember thinking that you were finally looking like your old self. After dinner we went and played your favorite game, Monopoly. It was a lot of fun, you were whispering to Dorian when me and her were trying to make deals with our properties, " Don't trust him, don't trust him." It was a great night, even though I still swear you cheated. I don't know where you got all the money from. A friend of mine recently told me that a mother is the one person that will always love you with all their heart, and I know thats true. I did a lot of things when I was a kid, mostly in my teen years that I wish I could take back. The one that sticks out to me right now the most is when you and dad had gone out for the night and I took your car out for a joyride. I remember passing by you on the road and you guys chasing me around town with you screaming out the window "PULL OVER NOW!!!" over and over again. I'm still sorry for that by the way, I know how crazy you were about your car. I also thought about every single morning, without fail, I would be late for school and you would have to drive me in. Even though we fought the whole way there, and you said you weren't doing this again tomorrow, morning would come again, and there we were day in and day out. Over the years we have been through it all, good and bad, ups and downs, but I wouldn't change a thing. As long as I have those memories, I will always have you with me, not in the way I want, but always in my heart. I know that even though you aren't here anymore you still got my back, and you will always look out for me, help me make the right decisions and protect me from harm. A mother's job is never done is what you've always told me and I know you will continue to be the best mom you could be. So mom, I just want to tell you that I'm going to be ok. I will get through this, it's going to be hard, but I will. You left a lot of great people here with me that will make sure of that. Tell dad I said hi, and I miss him a lot too. Give him a big hug and kiss from me and Jenea and let him know we're ok. I love you mom, more than you could ever know, and I will miss you everyday. I'm not saying goodbye, goodbyes are for people that will never see each other again, and I know that's not true. I asked you to visit me in my dreams, and I know you wont let me down. I love you forever and I will never forget you. Thank you for being my mother, thank you for loving me with all your heart every single day. Thank you for everything, every day, every night, every hug, every kiss. Thank you! Your grateful and blessed son.
