“Your mother is always with you…She’s the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street; she’s the smell of bleach in your freshly washed clothes; she’s the cool hand on your brow when you’re sick. She lives inside your laughter and she is in every teardrop. She’s the place you came from, your first home. She loved you first and always will. Nothing on Earth can separate you – not time, not distance, not even death. She has always watched over you and protected you and always will.”
