The Day My Mother Died!

Brenda Puente 1960 (Philadelphia, PA)

Today my mother passed, I feel so numb! So lost! I feel as if I cannot breathe! She was my rock, my friend, my strength. My mother was independent, hard working, loved to travel! I was loved! She prayed for me who will pray for me now? I called her phone and no one answered she was really gone. I’d give anything to hear her voice, to get a hug, a kiss. Just one more day!
