My mother was an angel
by colleen donaldson
My mother was the most beautiful person I could have ever known. In spite of all the hardships she went through in her life,she never failed to laugh and sing. She loved to sing and she also loved to dance.
When we were children, my brother and myself, along with my mom would dance to Lawrence Welk every sunday.
The months prior to her death, she would always tell me how much she loved us. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her pride and joy and she felt so blessed to have them.
The whole family including grandchildren and great grandchildren were there a couple of days before she died.
I will never forget; it was about a day before she died,she put her arms around me and told me how much she loved me and then she started to cry.I tried so hard to be brave for her, my heart was breaking. We lost the most beautiful angel,the one who loved to sing, laugh, and dance.
