Gone Too Soon

Yesterday August 19th, I lost one of the most important people in my life. My mother and my best friend. My mother has been there for me since day 1 and now my life feels empty without her. She was not only a mother but a grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and a great friend to many.

The words cannot describe how I'm feeling at the current time but I know that she's in a better place now, no longer suffering in pain and for that I'm grateful. Gone too soon but would never be forgotten. May her soul rest in peace and one day I hope to see her again.

Those who frequently visit Growing Up Madison, I'll be gone today to prepare for her funeral in the Caribbean. I'll be back on the 30th. Thank you to those who offered their condolences via Facebook and texts. Our family is currently in mourning but with your prayers, we will persevere.
