THE STORY:

May 28th 2014 at 11:46 p.m. you left this world...Not only did you leave this world, but you left us. And even though I know better, I sometimes can't escape the thought that this is some type of cruel joke played by God. Did we deserve it...did you? Was there anything any of us could have done to prevent a mishap of such magnitude? To lose someone so precious at the age of twenty five is pernicious enough...but to be four or ten... I can't even begin to fathom the damage this has created for those so young in mind and tender in heart. It is a pain that sinks into the bone. What will they think or how will they react, when all their class mates are making cards and gifts this next Mother's Day? Will this day become another holiday that symbolizes emptiness and abandonment like Father's Day has? Has it even resonated that they can never again feel your embrace, or hear your voice, anticipate your cooking, or depend on your sound advice? They never even got the chance to share their first cup of coffee with you, or have the "boys are nothing but trouble" conversation. All the things they are missing that only a mother can give. We will do our best, but it wont take your place...What about advice for their first place, or how to budget?...How can we extract their pain, or even lessen it? You left us with so many lessons...how to be independent, resilient, tough as nails but as delicate as a flower, how to lead, heal, laugh, love and be loved...but mom this is one lesson you left out. You never taught us how to let you go. You never prepared us for the broken heart that comes from losing the most important person in life. It's like a piece of the soul goes missing. A million questions plague my mind, and I no longer have you to call and ask how to work through it. Those two hour conversations are over. The shopping sprees are gone. No more crochet or sewing lessons. Mom you are by far the strongest person I have ever met. You were a force...a beautiful flower that rooted in concrete and grew despite the dark moments that tried to consume your existence. Your time was too short...but mom I know that you left a piece of yourself with each of us. Rest assured in knowing that the five of us will band together and use what you have given us to push through. We will take care of each other to the best of our abilities and WE WILL SUCCEED. We love you so much mama.

Forever and Always,

Your five beautiful daughters...J-RACK

“As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another. My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot now imagine a life without her.”
― Kristin Hannah, Summer Island

There are five of us. The eldest is 30, then 25, 19, 10 and 4. The eldest is taking custody of the two youngest and we are all moving in together to create a support system for all of us to be successful and live life as intended...to the fullest. Our goal is to rise above our circumstance rather than become victims to it. We would like to create a foundation for children without parents. This foundation would focus on all the expenses needed to help a child through the transition of switching homes. It is a very delicate process and exhausting for all who are involved. The last thing anyone should have to worry about after the death of a loved one is money. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Too many people are being nickel and dimed to raise money for funeral expenses, court fees, food, etc. My sisters and I are hoping to make this process a little easier. We would like to take our adversity and turn it into opportunity, by offering donations for some of these expenses...But first, we need to get our own transitioning process behind us. We are asking for help with court cost, first and last months rent plus the deposit on a house, food, clothing, transportation and any other necessary items the two youngest will need to make it through. Anything is appreciated. Thank you in advance and God Bless.
