When I am gone release me, let me go…
I have so many things to see and do.
I won’t be far away, for life goes on;
So if you need me, call and I will come,
Though you can’t see me I’ll be near,
And if you listen with your hear, you will hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
Till we meet again- goodbye

Dear Mom,

As I sit here, thousands of miles away, my heart aches with the profound longing to have been by your side one last time. The regret of not being able to attend your funeral weighs heavily on me, and I find myself grappling with the unfortunate reality that I was unable to be there to bid you a proper farewell. Please know that my thoughts and love were with you and our family. The pain of not being by your side during those final moments is a burden I will carry with me always, and for that, I offer my most sincere and heartfelt apology.

Throughout my life, you showed me strength, kindness, and unwavering support, and those lessons will continue to guide me. The memories we've shared, the laughter, the wisdom you imparted, and the unconditional love you gave, have all shaped the person I am today. As I take a moment to reflect on the life you lived, I find comfort in the knowledge that your spirit is free from pain, and your love lives on in each of us. I promise to honor your memory by living a life that embodies the love and resilience you exemplified.

Goodbye, Mom. Your absence leaves an emptiness that can never be filled, but your legacy will forever shine brightly in my heart.

With eternal love,
