Both posts were originally written on FaceBook and are still available in my notes & memories there… but I wanted to re-post them here to remember my mommy on today. Mom, I miss you and love you …and I am a great woman today because of YOU !

My mother had a massive stroke on Monday. I had to dress her tears streaming down my face….I took her to the hospital and she squeezed my hand knowing it was me…but then had to be put on a ventilator..her organs are now shutting down and today as per her wishes I must remove her from the ventilator. She is in no pain nor do I want her to suffer in any way. It is the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life and as an only child it is the most tragic moment I could ever imagine…however God is filling me with peace about it….she has accepted salvation and I got to tell her I loved her and she got to reciprocate that before this so all is well with my soul…Thank you all for all your prayers…my mom still defeated her challenge…the cancer did not kill her she didn’t allow it to, so for that I am proud of her, but deeply saddened by the sneak attack that has caused her body to grow weary….SHE WON! No matter what because she is going to a better place…all and all it what it is at the end of the day…she is forever my heroine and her strength will live on in me forever!
Thank you for singing this song to me mommy….I will never forget it!

SIP to my Mommy Geneva “RED” Wilson for 12/12. My house number is 1212 and you told me that one day I would be blessed and you were not sure if you would live to see it but that it would happen in Jesus name. You prayed against me drinking and against me doing things out of Gods will and you told me a day would come when I would serve him wholeheartedly…Mommy it happened and I am so grateful that no matter what I had a praying mother, grandmother and my Aunt-y is still praying for me. I love and miss you dearly but I am smiling not crying. I used to hug the Hennessy bottle and😭every year for holidays and on this day…now I hug my Bible and I know truly that I will see you again in Heaven. Today, I am just a young lady as you said you were an old one😉doing my best to make it in.🙏🏽❤️🙌🏼 #sip #geneva #red #mommy #bestmotherintheworld #missyou #loveyoualways #yourprayersworkedmom #amotherslove #mom #sleepinpeace #seeyouanddadinheaven #twelvetwelve
