Remembering our mothers

“When we lose our mothers, we lose much that can’t be replaced. But we are also left with much to cherish — memories, unique personality traits and strengths, wisdom, and hopefully an example that can inspire us to offer nurturing love to those who remain in our lives. A mother’s love is never lost if it is passed on.” ~Peggy Heinzmann Ekerdt
