Dear Lizzy, I am saddened. There is no feeling like losing a loved one. All the poetry in the world, all the words, can only do so much to relieve the pain, the emptiness, the confusion. A friend of mine used to say that those who passed had 'gone to God'. Maybe he was right, Lizzy. Maybe we are reunited. You have memories, rich memories of your Mom. Let these keep you, let them bring you solace, let them remind you of her strength, her courage. A mother is a special person; going by your vivacious, friendly soul, yours must have been top shelf.
Lizzy, let your tears flow, express your sadness and do it all over.
Freedom is coming.
