My mother passed away on this day in 2010. After six years, remembering the loss still invokes a fresh pain. There's so much I want to tell her, so many things about her grandson's life I wish I could share with her in person.
But still, her ever present smile remains fresh in my memories. Even in her suffering, she always had a smile for her family and friends. I pray that the joy she found in life is always part of me.
