Some would say she led a quiet simple life. She went to work every day. She helped provide for her family and enjoyed to quietly read a book or do the small crafts she enjoyed. She didn’t do things that others would consider extraordinary or exceptional.

To me she is Mom but she was so much more.

She was the wife who made sure dinner was ready, clothes were clean, the bills got paid and my dad had what he needed.

She was the sister who reached out to keep our family in touch with each other
.
She was the friend who would be our shoulder to lean on, sharing our tears and our laughter.

She was the grandmother who took the time to play games, read stories and go to fun, exciting places with.

She was the mother who taught, guided and kept me informed. But most of all, she listened without judgment or criticism.

Now that I have my own family and struggle to provide them with the things they need, which can be overwhelming at times, I wonder how she was able to do it. I see the sacrifices she made. I understand how she always put her family first even at her own expense. I hope one day I will learn how to be even half as exceptional as my mother.

My mom’s biggest fear was that Alzheimer’s would take her and that she would be a burden to her family, especially my dad and I. Even though her loss was unexpected and saddens us all, I believe it was as she wanted, to pass quickly and quietly. We honor her as the exceptional person she was.
