Mary Ball

Mamma I miss you. You gave me strength when I needed it the most. Tomorrow is my birthday and this is the first time I will not receive a phone call to hear your voice on the other end. You were the only one who always remembered. Now that I am a Mother I can understand how important this is to remember. You gave me life and were always there for me.

Cancer is a terrible way to die and the time in the hospital will always be in my mind. Your Grandson will always remember Nonna and to this day when we pass the hospital he says " that is where Nonna is Mom don't be sad she is with Jesus." He was only two but old enough to understand. We love you. May God be with you forever.
