The First year
by Rusty Johnson
My name is rusty and my mom passed away on june 21st 2011, it is now may 7th 2012, my mom passed away when i was 17, and i am now 18 and i have 3 little brothers to help with this subject as well, along with my grandmother (my mothers mother) her father went home the after my mom did. my mommy was a cancer patient with the AIDS virus, she was a very special woman, she loved everyone and everything just for who they were, she was also a great christian woman, although she had made bad decisions in her life, she always had good intentions, i was the first born, and her best friend,as she called me, when i was born she wrote a poem called "my best friend" and she was a very talented artist and poet, but when i read it i couldn't help but breakdown and cry, and cry. i miss my mom everyday of my life and i feel like no matter what she would be proud of me, but she is disappointed in who i've been lately, but i know she is a better place, but i cant help but mis her dearly, and wish she was back here with me.
