January 22nd 2008

Josephine Helinski Davis.
I think this was a passport picture, though she never did get to go overseas like she wanted to.

It's been two years since she left us, I find that hard to believe at times. I'll never forget the moment my sister called me and I could hear in her voice what she hadn't yet told me and my world came tumbling down around me.

Mom, Karen (in the background) and Me. We were such a team, always tight. I must be about 3 here, my sister would be 17 months older than me. My Mom in her early thirties.

Time does not heal all wounds. You learn to "walk" with it. And to experience joy along with deep sorrow.

My Mom is still very much alive in those that she touched with her kindness, love and generosity, I carry her in my heart and memories each day of my life.

Karen and Me, a reflection of our Mother.

I am so sorry for you loss, I see that it has only been 2 years...and I agree with your quote, time does not heal all wounds. I lost my mother almost 17 years ago and each anniversary is just as hard. It's nice thinking back though and having some really great laughs at all the good times.

You and your family are in my thoughts today.

I agree with June; each anniversary is hard, not healed by time but hopefully made softer by fond memories.
