It’s absolutely senseless that a daughter is without her mother; that children are without their Nana; a husband is without his wife and a son is without his mama. This is now our family and it has been since my Mommy went to heaven in 2010. This will be our 4th Christmas without her. I remember as a child, she made Christmas the most amazing time ever. As hard as it is, we try to honor her with keeping with all the holiday traditions that she instilled in us. And each year since, I create a special wreath to bring to the cemetery to place it by her tomb stone. My pain, my yearning and my need for my Mommy runs deep. Loosing her is just senseless.
