Mom although my age rises and my mind begins to slow I will never forget the times that we have shared, you, Stink, and I. Mom a year after my car accident my doctor informed me that my mind will eventually begin to slow because of the trauma that was inflicted upon my brain, and there is a great possibility that it will adversely effect my memory. Mom at the time I did not care about my memory, for it was what it was, and it was going to be what it was going to be, that is, until you left us behind. Mom I devised a plan to keep my loving thoughts of you with me until it is time for me to rest. Mom I will write daily to exercise my loving thoughts of you, my loving thoughts of us. Mom my thoughts of you at this moment are clear and vivid as I sit alone this late hour, for sleep is not welcomed, it is being deprived, this night belongs to us. Mom I will never forget you, I will never forget us, I will not! Mom I refuse to let my loving memories of you, my loving memories of us, fade away like they never existed, like they never knew the love that I have for you, the love that I have for us. Mom many say I need to let you go and move on, but I cannot, my wounds are still fresh, and I like them that way, for the pain that I feel daily is a reminder that you were here with me, that you were here with us, so my pain I keep. Mom as our loving night grows old and my eyelids begin their descent I shall not fight their short fall any longer, for I must rise early to think of you, to think of us. Mom I will never forget you, I will never forget us, I will never forget, never.

“No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten.”
