I was so heart broken to hear of Cass's passing. I loved her to pieces. She was one of my favorite patients. Sorry to hear of her loss, the clinic will be lonely without her!
My mom was a wonderful,most kind hearted person. She would have done anything for anyone, she loved everyone and did not judge. She was to young to die and I miss her more than words can express! It wasn't fare how she went but at least she isnt in anymore pain of any kind. Mom I love you and miss you and I hope you found the peace you deserve and Thank you for being my MOTHER!!! <3
I loved my mother inlaw dearly i would do,go,be anywere or time for her.I grow up in a large family yet the words "i love you"or "Goodnight" were neil to none.She would tell me everyday she loved me and goodnight.Aslo goodmorning all whom know me i'm not a morning guy and grumpy,yet she,d tell me anyhow!She taught me love and the words true meaning and how meaningfull the word is..I told her everynighyt and day "love you mom".This was so easy for me with her,yet took me 30yrs.to open up.She was so happy just for a hug and smile.All whom know me know i'm closed and boldly uptight emotionaly,she brought the best out of me at all times "I love you mom" I will continue daly an nightly to say "love you mom" and in the love of your memory I am a better man with your love for me and always loving me."I love you mom".I will miss you dearly,yet I will never forget what you've given me and did'nt even know it.For I did'nt eithere until I told you "I love you" and your soul heard my words.
Autumn and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I have moved from the area and just read about your mom. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I considered Autumn my friend and I will miss "bantering" she always did with me.
