  • Cyndi Stevens: Mom... Always dependable...Always giving...Always kind ...Always loving... You were in every important memory throughout my life and my love for you cannot be measured nor matched. You were there, even when you didn't have time to be.
    Someone told me just the other day that a mothers job was to teach her kids right from wrong and raise her kids to be a success and to live on their own independently. Also, show her grandchildren utmost kindness, and love them so much that they know without a doubt that they are loved - you did that without question. Even beyond that everyone knew how much you loved those great grandchildren as well - and that they loved you. All a person had to do was look at a picture of you holding any one of your grand or great- grandchildren and you could see adornment both ways.
    You gave us all you had to give growing up. Even though you didn't have a lot, monetarily, you made up for it in sacrifice and love. And, when it was hard, you moved forward, undaunted.
    You raised us with such honesty-you were the one in the grocery store that if you were given the wrong change, you would promptly return it.
    You cared for many of your loved ones who were in the same situation as you were, in the end (with cancer). You watched them suffer and knew you did not want that for yourself. God granted you that wish. But you were taken too quickly, too quickly for us to tell you how much your hand in our lives was REALLY appreciated and too quickly for us to let you know just how wonderful you REALLY were. We wanted you here for ourselves, but thank God that we had you for the time that we did. Your job here was complete, and you did it so well.
    I am thankful For all the love you gave, every sacifice you made, every time you were there when I needed you-no matter what, each lesson you taught, fever you broke, bandaid you placed, tear you kissed away, ornament you painted, tablecloth, doily or sweater you crocheted, pajama or dress you sewed, kind word spoken, hug and kiss given, ride that you gave, loan you made, and all of many unnamed things.
    I am sorry for these: Tears that you cried, sleep you lost, and sacrifice you made
    I wish I could give you every dream that didn't come true, and mending for every time we broke your heart, and thanks for always believing in me when I was not believable or was undeserving of your kindness. Memories of you will always be cherished and you will remain with me always.
    I love you. Thank you mom. Your daughter. I miss you so.
