He’s leaving today…

I met him for the first time on a cold February day in 1996 and my life was forever changed.

We grew together. Weathered storms and celebrated victories. We fought and struggled. We laughed until we cried.

I taught him to walk and talk and read and think.

He taught me patience and respect and understanding.

I made him a man.

He made me a mom.
