It has been so many years since you left this world, but I do not weep because now, as in life, I know you have never left my side.

Today on your birthday, I raise a toast to you, Mom, the lady who will always have a special place in my heart.

I still feel his love and while I miss him every day I have no doubt that whenever the need arises in my life he is there for me spiritually. Guiding me and protecting me.

Should I expect any difference? Not really, after all, they are my parents and great parents they were
