Merry Christmas, Mom - Part 3

The last Christmas that we spent together was three years ago. When you died it hurt me incredibly, it was a devastating blow. The love that I felt for you was wonderful, it was extraordinary. Sadly, to be able to spend another Christmas with you, I would have to spend it in the cemetery. Christmas isn't as good as it once was because we're not together. I still carry you in my heart and I promise that I'll love you forever. [Dedicated to Agnes Johnson (1948-2013) who passed away on March 6, 2013.]
