Merry Christmas Mom...
We had a lot of fun. Chase come over from Idaho and we opened presents and played cards and as usual, Mom took pictures. I don't have a lot of pictures from that night, but what I do have is really blurry for some reason. This is one of the last pictures that was taken of Mom. That same night, they headed home to Wamsutter. Christmas day, I remember sitting on the couch watching a movie, I talked to Mom for a little bit, wished her a Merry Christmas and told her I would call her a little later.
About an hour later got a call from Dad saying he couldn't get a hold of her and he was worried and was going to swing by the house. I tried calling a few times and couldn't get a hold of her either. She mentioned about taking some things to the neighbors, so I assumed that she was over delivering her homemade goodies and forgot her phone.
Nothing could have prepared me for the call from Dad. I remember as if it was yesterday. I couldn't believe my ears. It seemed that I had just talked to her... just only a couple of hours ago.
I miss her dearly. Christmas will never be the same without her, life will never be as complete. Thank you Mom for being so amazing! I love and miss you!
