Today, one year ago….


Today, one year ago, my mother passed away.

…I don’t like to make much of an anniversary of such date…but it is also impossible to just let this day pass without acknowledging that she had been on my mind every moment of it.

Her place is empty in this world.

But she lives forever in our hearts and she would have loved this song today… I just know that.
She loved singing and I miss her voice.

This is who she was…humble, grateful, faithful – living each day to serve others.

We will always love and miss her.

    Dit word ongelukkig nie makliker met tyd nie …net draagliker.
    Hulle vir wie ons lief is, vervaag nie – hul bly inderdaad voortleef in ons gedagtes deur ons ‘memories’ soos wat jy ook nou ervaar.
    Wat ‘n vreugde en vooreg om mooi herinnering te mg koester!
    Laat ons ook só leef dat ander ons met liefde sal onthou!
