To my dearest mom (my beautiful angel),
You touched so many lives and so many people love you. I feel so fortunate that you were my mom and that my sons met you. You're the best person they and I have ever met. Yes, we grew up poor, but you always showered us with love and protection. You taught bro and me how to be men; how to be strong but with humility. You were both mom and dad because our dads were not around, and I couldn't have asked for a better childhood and adulthood. You always gave me advice and I always listened as best I could to you. You are a gentle, kind, and loving soul. You never hurt anyone, especially us (except for when you would chase me around with a frying pan ha-ha). What I wouldn't give to relive everything again with you. You were always a fighter, even up till your last breath. You never complained about your adverse life, you just kept going.
I admire you so much for all you did for me, and I am saddened that I won't be able to touch, hug, kiss, or listen to you tell me "I love you, Chris" until we meet again. We had so many memories, and I am grateful that the last month in the hospital I was by your side holding your hand and talking with you. We would look into each other's eyes and say those three magical words. Then you would put your hand out for me to come close so you could kiss my cheek. I am happy for you mom. I'm happy that you will no longer be confined to a wheelchair, that you are pain-free, no more dialysis, no more poking and prodding, and that you found a true everlasting love in Justin. But mostly I am happy for the fact that you went from one loving son directly into the arms of your other. You will be missed by everyone who knew you. I asked you not to forget me and for you to explore the new place you go to so that when I come, you can show me around. I so look forward to that and being with you and bro again. I choose not to be weak about your death. Instead, I choose to be strong like you. Yes, my tears turn from happy ones to sad ones at any given moment, but I know you are in that "Happy, Funny Place."
A few weeks ago, you asked me to sing to you. So I made up a song, "Beautiful Angel." Then you changed one verse and sang it to me. I will sing that song in my head every now and then, and I hope you hear me as I hope I hear you.
I love you, Momma. Chris.
