  1. Mother, I sit here just a few hours before Xmas, just a few weeks since your “going home.” Mother you will never know how my heart aches, I had no clue how frail or sick you were, but I know you are in heaven, that you had made sure of and that one day I will join you there. I miss you more than I thought I could miss someone, never thought it would be my mother….Love always, your son, Don
