I can hardly believe that it’s been a month already. I’ve been quiet in this time, processing, grieving and picking up the pieces of my broken heart. As many of my friends and loved ones have said, there are no words when it comes to losing your mother. I was so blessed to have a mom who was so full of kindness, love and compassion for the world — someone so full of love that her loss leaves a huge gap in my life.
My sister, Cassandra, wrote this beautiful poem in honour of our mother.
