My mom, passed away on April 3, 1991 (24 years ago). She was killed in a nearly head-on automobile accident, five miles from home. It is hard to believe she has been gone for 24 years. I have been motherless for over half of my life...and that beyond sucks. :(
Mom and I did not get along very well as I was growing up BUT she was a great mother. I just wish that I had listened to some of her advice at the time she offered it to me. But I thought I was right and that she was just trying to run my life. I know better now. I miss her and love her very much.
