Thoughts I had on October 22 (and yes, I still call her “Momie” and no, I don’t know why she spelled it that way)
I really missed you today. When you were alive I used to call to say “thanks” in the years when making phone calls became more difficult for you. As I got older I began to see how much I had to thank you for. You taught me how to be a woman, didn’t you? You taught me about integrity, dignity, and honesty. You showed me the value of hard work. You were my role model for compassion and understanding. I get my love of politics from you. You were a great mother. I really missed you today.
