    Yes- Birthdays are hard times!!! May 22nd was the first time that my Mom was not on earth to celebrate her birthday. She passed away October 2016 at the age 96. I knew the day would come and I thought I was prepared but I am amazed at how much a miss her!! That bond of Mother and daughter or child never dies and you miss them so much. Some day we will be reunited! Praise God!

    Love, Pam
