Celebrating the life of a wonderful woman....

Four years ago today, my mom took her last breaths and left this world. We were all with her and she is at Peace now. I will see here again, one day!
Me and my mom!


















My Mom! My mom is Louise. My mom is beautiful, loving and kind. My mom is brave, strong and inspirational. My mom is special to me because she gave birth to me on Nov. 28, 1965. She nurtured me and raised me to be the special woman I am today. She supported me, put up with me, listened to me, gave me good advice, and loved me unconditionally. She was always kind and funny!! I LOVE my mom very much....

Dear Mom,
I wanted to let you know how much I miss you and that I think about you all the time... day and night! It's so hard to be without your beautiful smile, loving words, and warm hugs. You live on in my thoughts and in my heart. You are everything to me. You are the best mom EVER and you have always been there for me. I LOVE YOU MOM!!
Love, your one and only daughter, Leese

I loved your mom too. My mom and I took Elliott to Gardner Park yesterday, and my mom commented about how nice it was and that she had never been there. I told her that Louise used to take us all the time. We started reminiscing about your family. I had no idea it was the anniversary of her death. Her memories live on.

Gorgeous tribute, Leesa!

I remember you posting something last year around this time and thinking what a beautiful mother you had. She eminates such wonderful energy in her smile - you can actually see it!

I love all the photos you posted here, but especially loved the one of she and your father that was taken in the photo booth. You can see the love they shared.

I know your mother reads this post and just SMILES at you. Proud to have you as her daughter.

Love to you, my friend!
