Today I lost one of the most important people in my life, my previous employer, my mother and my friend. To many, she was a kind employer to me, but in my heart, she was more than that. For me, she was the person who made me laugh. I can still remember those days when we used to laugh at a very simple thing, or even at a simple mistake. We both loved to joke, and share stories. And we both found happiness in sharing each others memories. She was very special, a giving and a strong woman. A woman who was always able to see the lighter side of life. She was the one who loved to celebrate life and share its beauty to others. She used to tell me that life is beautiful, we only need to accept things as they are. We had lots of fun, but we had lots of arguments too. Those arguments that led us to understand and respect each other. There was that mutual understanding of trust and a solid friendship. She was my partner and my friend. I enjoyed every minute of working with her. The truth is, I did not work for her, it was not work, it was more of a daughter taking care of her beloved mother. She was a confidante and a mother to me. She knew how to make me feel better. She hugged me like her own daughter whenever I was hurting, she gave me the most comforting embrace and reminded me that she cared. How I long for those moments that even until now when I am in pain, I still call her name and wish to be
beside her. I missed ima so much, more than words can say. I know she loved me, and I loved her so much. Now it is time to say goodbye to my beloved ima. Now is the last time to thank her for all the things she has done for me. Thank you ima, for the love you had given me. Thanks for the memories, for those happy times we spent together, for those difficult days we were able to survive, for taking care of me and helping me to be where I am right now. A part of you will always be with me no matter where I go. I will always cherish you. Goodbye and I love you..
