Lung Cancer Sucks

Three years ago today, my Momma died of lung cancer.
It was four days after my baby's 1st birthday.  The day after his birthday party. She didn't even get to be at it.  I only got three pictures of them together.  I'm sad every time I think about it.
I miss her everyday.  But the pain isn't as sharp as it used to be.
I don't see my siblings as much with her gone.  That makes me sad.
My cousin reminded me a funny story, so I decided to share it with you today.
One day my Aunt Shiela, cousin Love'e and her two sons (ages 10 and 13) came to visit mom (who's name was Twila), when she was sick.  Mom was talking about telemarketers and how they drove her crazy!  She said one night a telemarketer called and for Twiller. 
My mom quickly snapped, "Who the *beep* names their kid Twiller?"
My cousin's boys thought that was hilarious....and still talk about it to this day.
...
Oh, my gosh I miss her!

Amy,
I am sending weak hugs to you over the internet, so you don't get the flu! Carl's momma died from it when he was 15, after just over a yr long battle. She was only 44...This July was 16 yrs for him, very painful as that same week in July is also the week that Faith was dxed with her brain tumor 2 yrs ago and that my best friend passed in her sleep. My heart goes out to you but I know that no one can understand what it feels like.
XOXOXOXO

Death sucks. I just keep teling myself that it's worse for me then for the people I've lost--at least, that's what I believe. Hugs to you today.

Oh Amy, I am so sad for you. And only three pictures is painful for me just to hear...I am so sorry. I pray God's grace ministers to you in a powerful way. xo

I miss her too. She, to this day is the biggest personality that I have ever met! I often wondered how it was possible to keep that much opinion wrapped up in one body. :)I loved and envied her strenght and passion. Because of her character she lives on both in us that knew her, and in the great stories she left us with. I won't ever forget her showing up at my wedding with a shaved head-or that she was the one that caught the boquet!! lol...Twila Knight...what a woman, so much so, that the name just didn't do her justice!

Im sorry for your loss, I cannot imagine what my life would be like without my mother.
Keep remembering the good times, all the fun memories you had with her, and remember how much she loved you...
