I was only 10 years old when my mom died because of cancer. It was such a bad day to all of us. My mom was my everything before though I have a nanny. She holds a special place in my heart until now. She was not a typical mom for me since she had done an extraordinary job. She was a town councilor and she really touched the lives of so many people. I was the one who was a bit choosy that time because a lot of people will go to our place and will ask for any help. Still, my mom would help them. As far as I remember, my mom didn't buy her votes. That is all honesty. She just invite me to eat in our house. That's how good she is. She is now being remembered by a lot of people every Nov. 1, which is my bday. Her legacy still lives on today.

Wow it's so touching to know that you're mom are remembered by people eventhough she passed away a long time ago. It just shows how good she was when she's still alive. I am sorry that you have lost your mom at such a young age. It might be really hard growing up without a mom. But seeing you here now made me think you have grow up a good person.

Hi there! Thank you so much! You just made me teary-eyed when I was reading your response. It was really a tough life. I was with my mom most of the time so when she was gone I really had a hard time. I spent most of my life working and was finding to someone or something you can make me happy. I don't go to places or to people that are associated to my mom. It still hurts a bit now knowing that she's gone specially during the Holiday season but life must go on. Keep on posting!

Oh sorry I have made you remember the tough things you've gone through But what is important now is that you have become a stronger person who can stand on your own even without your mom, with the help of the people who was with you as you grow old.

Sounds like your mother was one of the good ones, she did well and it is good that you appreciate and still remember the good, there should be more people like your mother in this very sad world. I know it is hard when you remember what you have lost but remember you were ever so lucky to have so many good memories about such a wonderful person and she was your mother... ..

Hello there! Thank you so much for your wonderful response. I did have a great time with my mother. I cannot exchange it for anything it. It's nice to have a mom who's there for you. My life has been a challenge when she was gone. It was so early for me to see the real world. I was very much dependent to her to her before. I had my lessons and will continue cherish all the things that happened in my past. Keep on posting!
