My Mother's Day Flowers

Derek, I'll never forget when you sent me these flowers from the USS George Washington! I didn't think that was possible to do, but you did it. That's how special you are, and how special that made me feel.

Miss You and Love You,

MOM

Dear Derek,

Tomorrow is your birthday. Now, I remember your life from the very beginning. I wish you were here to celebrate your 34th. Tomorrow, I will remember, honor, and celebrate your life the best I can. Sadness remains. Emptiness remains.

Miss You and Love You,

MOM

Dear Derek,

This Memorial Day, I honor and remember you, although I do so every day. I miss you so much. My life is so empty without you. One day I will wake up from this nightmare and be reunited with you again.

Love You and Miss You,

MOM

Flowers for Mother's Day sent from Derek aboard the USS GW

Dear Derek,

I was so amazed when you sent me these flowers from your ship!! I'll never forget. Mother's Day and other special days and holidays are hard. I wish you could come home. I wish I could go back in time. Sometimes I wish I was never born.

Love You and Miss You,

MOM

Dear Derek,

Tomorrow you would have been 33. Instead, you are forever 27. I can't celebrate your birthday anymore, just remember it. You were, and always be the most special person I ever knew. I am most concerned about where you are and if you're happy and at peace. I love you and miss you so much,

MOM
