Today my mom would have turned 65. She passed away 3 years ago after a year of fighting some really bad pneumonia. Doctors would say her heart got seriously compromised due to her pneumonia, which in turn, ended up affecting her brain and liver, until she finally decided to leave this world. The way I see it is she died of exhaustion. She was hard- working and she would keep working and doing everything she could and more to support her family.
She was the most down-to-earth person I've ever met and my best teacher. She did make mistakes, though; she wasn't perfect, but her good deeds will long outlast her few flaws and faux pas. She loved spoiling my sister and me because she believed that we would encounter enough hardship later in life. I actually didn't realize how spoiled we were until she was gone.
I'm really glad that she got to meet David once (on his first visit to Buenos Aires) and that she really liked him :). I hope I get over the fact that she will never meet her grandchildren, that is if we ever decide to have kids.
No need to feel sad or sorry for me, seriously; I'm just saying a star might shine a little brighter tonight ;).
