5:30pm today mom, Rita has joined Jesus. She is in heaven singing praise. She has brought so many people together and touched so many lives.
She was not only my mom but by closest and best friend.
So many have come to support my family in this, a testament to the lives she touched, and We have all praised God for such loving people in our lives you are all beautiful.
Everyone has been so comforting and for that I thank you.
I want to celebrate her life and what an amazing mother she was. She is not dead as the “world” would see it, I KNOW she is alive in Christ and she has received the most beautiful gift of all this evening, to be with her Blessed Savior.
She is free from the horrible pain that had plagued her these HARD HARD 6 months. Now she is free.
I love you SO MUCH mom if you read this and see this know how much I miss you, how much I love you, as I said to you today, know in my heart how much you mean to me.
And know that despite all these trials we have faced I will NEVER give up because I do have your stubborn streak and I will be like you, and I want to be just like you were, unwavering in faith and praise.
You sacrificed everything to provide for your family even in the depths of your own fears and pain. You gave it your all for us and always did your best to provide for me the most amazing of experiences many times at your own discomfort.
You opened your home to my friends as if they were you own children. You hugged and comforted me when no one else was there and I was alone.. you were there and we were together as a team. We faced hardship together in those early rough years of my childhood and came out stronger for it. You gave me my education and encouraged me when others told me I would fail. You are so beautiful in spirit.
You comforted me so much mom… but now It’s time for you to be at rest to be comforted and know that Dad and I will be alright. I will take care of him and he will me. Even though this is killing me inside now it will only make us stronger in the lord and closer to each other.
I grieve because I will miss talking to you and hearing your voice and sharing in your humor. But I will always cherish you and the wonderful memories we had together forever in my soul. I will never EVER lose that.
I am so honored and blessed to have had you for MY MOM.
Words can’t describe how much EVERYONE will miss your beautiful singing voice and your smile and words of wisdom.
You are my inspiration you are my lovely mother and always will be.
This is not the end.
I love you.
