  19. Hey Mom, you always new how to pull on my Heartstrings. You will never be alone because you took a piece of me with you. I will miss trying to find a way to come and get the grass cut. Hearing your voice telling me to come in when I was done. And being amazed how someone could cook me a steak boil potatoes and have them mashed along with a vegetable. Sundays before the dementia pasta, meatballs a salad that only you could make. I love you Mom, you took what’s left of my heart with you. I have to say thank you to my sister Donna,Sean and the kids. They gave my mother incredible comfort on a day-to-day basis as she suffered from dementia. It was something to witness and gave me Comfort when I left after a visit, knowing she was in such incredible care. With love and a kiss on the cheek. Your thick headed son, Stephen
