|My condolences on your mom's passing. She would be proud of your tribute to her. Keep up the good work and remember she still lives on in your thoughts, your heart, and your writing.
Bravo my friend.
If you are so inclined, I wrote a piece (short story) honoring my dad who passed away. Before he died I begged him to give me a sign from the next step of his spiritual journey whenever and where ever he ended up after leaving us.
A week after he passed away he kept his promise and delivered my sign. Its entitled "foul balls from heaven" on my port. I hope it inspires you.
