    mom,
    It has been one month since I have heard your voice, your laugh, one of your outrageous remarks, funny but inappropriate jokes and laughing so hard because your mouth doesn’t have a filter! I listen to your voicemails a lot just to hear your voice. I know one month isn’t long, but it seems like forever and what hurts worse is knowing I will never hear any of those things from you again. I k now I was angry at you, and I am working really to have forgiveness and less anger. Brandon doesn’t understand all of this and gets confused, but he talks to you sometimes and he always asks if you are in heaven, I always tell him I sure do hope so. I know I was always so tough on you, and I hope you know that’s only because I wanted you better, I wanted you to be that mother that I always hoped for, I wanted to make memories that we could forever cherish, take pictures that we never got to take, but more than anything because I loved you more than you will ever know or could ever imagine!
    love you!
    -Holly
