My Mom Was An Amazing Woman by Clifford Sullivan (her loving son).

My Mom was self-less, generous, loving, funny, fun, a really good cook, a worrier, a fighter, the greatest mother and friend a son could ever ask for and she had a beautiful spirit... For the last 18 years of her life, my Mom fought to remain here with us, until she could no longer fight. The truth is, she didn't just become a fighter, the fighter was always in her. I was with her the entire journey from start to finish and I loved every moment good and bad. She was my best friend and my mother. I love and miss her so very much with all my heart and soul. I will miss all the fun-times and good-times we spent together. Life is not the same with, her not around. Her love was like the warm sun that warmed up my heart and soul, and lit-up my whole world. I miss our talks and quality time we spent together everyday. She was a super-mom and she meant the world to me... That's the truth... I miss my Mom every minute of every day. There are so many things I want to tell her and talk to her about - and I do - hoping that somehow she hears me from her home in Heaven. I look forward to the day that I can see her again and hug her tight. She was the glue that held the family together and the loving core of our family. She will always be missed, loved and never forgotten. She will remain in the minds and hearts of all her loved ones.
