I lost my mother, my best friend, in 1987.
Mom, I miss you every day.
For the first time, this year Mr. AOW and I didn't send a Mother's Day card to his mother, who is in end-stage Alzheimer's. Today will likely be her last Mother's Day on this earth. In truth, she left us a long time ago when she no longer recognized any of us.
Cherish your mother while you can. The time is all too short!
