Default A Tribute to Mom

Some of you might remember 6 years ago on Feb. 5 I lost my mom to cancer.
I would like to remember her today with this video/song by a Montreal singer/songwriter named Wendy Farha. She wrote this song in tribute to her dad, who also passed from cancer in 2005.

Mom. I will always remember you.

Here's Wendy's video:

You were right R/D, the tears flowed. But they were good tears accompanied by good memories.

Thank you Donna. I remember when your Mother passed. I too lost my precious Mother to cancer in November 1997.I see the resemblance to yo in her picture. Beautiflu lady.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
