Candle lit by Mitchell Schreiber Mom has finished her battle with Alzheimer's and she went to be with Dad.. I wrote this little poem knowing her race was nearly over. Lots of emotion and memories happening right now. Miss you mom, give a hug to dad for me. "As far back as I remember an angel held my hand Wiped my tears and hurts away, helped me understand Her love was surely absolute and always proud was she She’d help us hold our heads up high, through the things we could not see. With perfect words of wisdom, she helped us find our way, Down the paths of right and wrong, if ever we’d go astray. She saw the good in all of us, saw past the hurts and pain So we too could learn and grow, till no regrets remained. We will miss you Mom, you can let go, in time we will be fine. There is no doubt you did your best, but now its time to rest. Go be with dad you’ve waited long, to get that forever embrace Hold your head high and smile Mom, you finished your long, long race." ~Mitch

Candle lit by Kevin Schreiber My mother was the most positive person I have ever known. She always told me that I could do anything I set my mind to and I believe she is responsible for any success I may have had in life. Even after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s she never showed any anger or resentment regarding the disease but instead pushed on as her memory began to slip away, telling us that she would never forget us. She loved all of her children so fiercely that it was obvious to anyone who ever met her. Even while struggling with such a horrible disease for a those years she managed to always let us know how important we were to her. She made it obvious how proud she was of each one of us every time she would introduce us to her friends. Just like her mother, our mom was such a godly woman and she will always hold a piece of my heart. The sting of her passing is only soothed by the knowledge that she is finally in heaven reunited with the love of her life along with all of her family that went before her. I love you mom. I miss you terribly, but look forward to seeing you when I get there.
