rushing to the hospital, to find my mother in i.c.u. the doctors informing me that she hadn't much time left. sitting with her and holding her unresponsive hand, i was able to tell her that i loved her. with one of her last breaths, she squeezed my hand. i think she heard me. this sounds sad, but i treasure being able to be there at her last moment, so she wasn't alone.
Reading a spontaneous love note from my husband. He wrote, "I've said a lot of things in my life, but when I said 'I do', I really DID!". And he really did. I still have that love note and all the valentines, love notes and cards he sent me through our 19 years and 9 months of marriage. He crossed over to the other side 24+ years ago and I still remember every little thing about him. My Guy.
My most vivid and cherished memory is when I was about 5 years old. I remember being pummeled by ocean waves, unable to breathe. I remember seeing my dads hand reaching for me and pulling me out of the water and he gave me the biggest, best, all consuming hug I've ever had. He was bigger than life.

Being there for my mother when she passed away from cancer. Every Sunday I would take her out for a drive for just an hour or two down to the beach and she really enjoyed that. I also went over for a visit every night, she loved to watch the game shows Just those little things are great memories
When my brother was in the ER one time for I don't remember what. But anyways, me and my dad were getting ready to leave. My mom was staying with him till he got out and came home. But before we left he says just before I walk out of the room "Give me a hug"!! I'm tearing up right now almost as I type this. But me and him have never been closer because we drive each other crazy like siblings do. He's still around so, don't think he's dead or something. ;) But we're normally not like that. He was loopy and stuff so that may have caused it but, I just believe he really wanted a hug.
