Mother's Day

Mother's Day

It was seven years ago when you celebrated your final Mother's Day.
We had to bury you ten months later when you passed away.
Before you became ill, your death wasn't something that our family anticipated.
We made the doctors do everything they could, including having your leg amputated.
You became a mom in 1967 when you gave birth to my only brother.
You were a unique person and one of the world's greatest mothers.

[Dedicated to Agnes Greene-Johnson (1948-2013) who passed away on March 6, 2013.]

Hi Randy....It is so obvious the love you have for your mother...You have always written about her so reverently.  I am sorry you do not have her to celebrate with and it makes this day so bittersweet.  Beautiful tribute. Thank you for sharing.  ((hugs))
