Hugs! It sounds like you had/have a really special relationship with your mom. That is rare and precious!


She was gorgeous. You really do look a lot like her. I've enjoyed learning more about her.


I have so enjoyed these posts. You are a wonderful writer. I'm sure this week is sad for you and I hope you can find comfort.


How wonderful to be so loved. You obviously have a very special bond with your mother.


This is quite beautiful, I really enjoyed reading about your mom.


This is a beautiful tribute to your Mom Jenn.
What a great woman she was, overcoming so many obstacles. Thank you for sharing.
I can't wait to read more, she/you are both very inspiring.


Oh! No luck, but lucky to have YOU Jenn.


What an awesome tribute to your Mom...and I'm glad you two had such an amazing bond :-)


As you are so proud of her, I know she must have been proud of you, too.
May you have joy in the happy memories.


You wrote an absolutely beautiful tribute to your mom. It was very touching and inspiring.


What a lovely tribute to your mom. Eagerly awaiting more of the story.


And she would have loved this week of stories

You're the lucky gift that keeps on giving.


J - this was a lovely series. Thank you for sharing.


My mom died in 2002, too. She was quite a bit older than your mom (75), but it was still too soon. It's funny how the sharp pain fades and her being gone finally begins to feel "normal." But you don't stop missing her and wishing she could see her grandchildren.

Thanks for sharing your mom with us.

Mrs. G.

You have her beautiful smile.


So much heartbreak in the world. RIP.

Wow Jenn. I can only imagine how proud she must be of you, your life, your journey, your parenting, your soul, your depth...

I'm sure she misses you, too.

I loved reading this. So complex, these mother relationships, yes?

my mohter died that year too. no matter what the age, it's never enough.
'inspired and vexed in equal parts' that says it all. your stories are so honest. that's why they are so readable.
you always leave me wanting more.
thanks for sharing. :-))


I truly enjoyed this story and the love you share with your mom. :)


I've been away, but wanted to say your mother sounds like she was an amazing person.
