    So sorry to hear about Mackie Jean. She was a dear friend to many people, including my Momma and Daddy, (Jack & Ollie Fox). I know she will be dearly missed. Prayers go out to all the family.

    Prayers and lots of loves your way. The loss of mother is a terrible loss. She’s made it to heaven just in time for Christmas. Hope your sorrow is replaced by happy memories soon.

    So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. The loss is permanent and the memories will never go away. I have found this poem to be helpful to many people. I hope it is good for you.

    POEM: “When Tomorrow Starts Without Me”

    When tomorrow starts without me,
    And I’m not there to see,
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    All filled with tears for me:
    I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
    The way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things,
    We didn’t get to say.
    I know how much you love me,
    As much as I love you,
    And each time you think of me,
    I know you’ll miss me too;
    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    Please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name,
    And took me by the hand,
    And said my place was ready,
    In heaven far above
    And that I’d have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love.
    But as I turned to walk away
    A tear fell from my eye
    For all my life, I’d always thought,
    I didn’t want to die.
    I had so much to live for,
    So much left yet to do,
    It seemed almost impossible,
    That I was leaving you.

    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    The good ones and the bad,
    The thought of all the love we shared,
    And all the fun we had.
    If I could relive yesterday
    Just even for a while,
    I’d say good-bye and kiss you
    And maybe see you smile.
    But then I fully realized
    That this could never be,
    For emptiness and memories
    Would take the place of me.
    And when I thought of worldly things
    I might miss come tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did
    My heart was filled with sorrow.
    But when I walked through heaven’s gates
    I felt so at home
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    From his great golden throne,
    He said, “This is eternity,
    And all I’ve promised you.
    Today your life on earth is past
    But here it starts anew.
    I promise no tomorrow,
    But today will always last,
    And since each day’s the same way,
    There is no longing for the past.
    You have been so faithful,
    So trusting and so true.
    Though there were times
    You did some things
    You knew you shouldn’t do.
    But you have been forgiven
    And now at last you are free.
    So won’t you come and take my hand
    And share my life with me?”

    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    Don’t think we’re far apart,
    For every time you think of me,
    I’m right here in your heart

    David M. Romano (1993)
