    Mom it has been almost 5yrs and the ache and emptiness I feel without you is still there. So much has changed since God took you home. You have more grandchildren whom I know would have loved you dearly. My kids miss you so much as do all your children. We are lost without you. Your absence has changed our lives forever. I miss your coffee and your text early in the morning saying “coffee is ready.” I miss going over and talking to you on your front porch. I miss your sent. Our girl talks. Mostly I just miss you in every way imaginable. I will never ever forget you and I promise to always keep your memory alive in our family. 52yrs old was to early to watch you go. For some reason God wanted you home early. I just wish he knew the heart ache we all feel. Dad will be okay mom we all are looking out for him. Rest easy my dear mother for one day I will see you when he calls me home. Love You forever mom Chava
