I am my mothers son.
I am thinking through my life memories of you and I. I was wondering why the forces of time constantly pulled you and I close then seperate. Closer, then seperate. Close again but never really ""together"" the way a mother and son relationship should be?
While we could never manage to build a bridge the way it should have been built, we did manage to build a path. The path we made did bring us together for short periods of time and ended up that it would have to be enough...
Mothers Day is going to be difficult this year as I have not, not sent you a mothers day card my entire adult life. I knew how much you enjoyed getting one and it made me feel good to remind you how much you mean to me.
My heart is heavy mom, very sad. I am better though knowing that you are not in pain and suffering. I am not there at your services. You and I know what we met to one another and I do not feel the need to see you now that your not with the fire, salt and vinegar that was my mother.
I will carry the memory of last fall, the last time I saw you. Holding your hand, talking, the hugs and kiss good buy. The memories of my life of you, the love for you will always keep us close. The path has changed now. It is now a circle. A circle of love. Of you and me and in it, you will live on mom, through me.
Bob will always have a special place in my heart mom. He is one of the kindest persons I will hope to know in my lifetime. I consider Bob a National Treasure, a man who treasured you and our family. A man who is my brother, in our service to this country we hold so dear in our hearts. I have so much respect for him mom and I love him dearly.
Scherri, Dennis, and I will carry on. I make a promise to you mom. We will always stay close and love each other. We will continue this family and be there for each other, mom.
I guess it&s time to say good buy for now mom. You are with me always and I will talk to you often.
Your son, Brian
