On January 19th 2004, my entire world collapsed. That is the day that a part of me died as my mom left this world and entered into heaven. A year before she passed away she was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancerous brain tumor. She had the surgery which removed the tumor and as much of the surrounding area that they could remove with it. My mom recovered amazingly from the surgery and my family had our loving, caring, smiling, sparkling mom again. She went through chemotherapy and radiation with a smile on her face never revealing her fear of the unknown. It only took a few months for the tumor to return, slowly taking my mom away from us, slowly removing her smile, her memory, her life! A year long battle ended for her and there is not a minute or second that goes by that I don't miss her and think about her and cry for her. My mom's memory lives on in every one's lives she has touched. She truly is an angel and heaven is a better place with her there. God only takes the best. I love you mom and miss you more and more everyday. It does not get easier and never will. I will never forget you and can still hear your voice and see your smile. Until we see each other again, my heart is full of wonderful memories that I will share with Halainah Grace.

God saw you getting tired,
The cure was not to be
He wrapped you in His loving Arms,
And whispered "Come to Me"
You suffered much in silence,
Your spirit did not bend
You faced your pain with courage,
Until the very end
You tried so hard to stay with us
Your fight was not in vain
God took you to His loving Home
And freed you from your pain
A golden heart stopped beating,
Two working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
