In Memory of Antoinette Eck

My mom passed away December 22, 2012. We were blessed that she lived to be 89 years old. I miss her so much, but I know she is in perfect peace and happiness now and for all time in heaven.
I really like this photo of her from Christmas 2009. It seems like she is telling me that everything is going to be alright. She seems so happy here. I like to remember her this way.

my condolences Laura; your tribute is lovely and I can certainly see a family resemblance between your Mum and yourself

Beautiful pictures, Laura! And you do look like your mom. Wonderful memory! Love to see a picture of you as a baby with your mom. You still have one? May good memories guide you.

Laura, I'm so sorry about your mom. She looks to be a lovely lady inside and out. Like, Hetty, if you have one of you and your mom as a baby/child, please share.

Laura - somehow I missed this. I am so sorry for your families loss. This old world is just so full of sorrow anger and hate is seems to be what we see the most of everyday but if one looks closely they see the love, goodness, honor and happiness that we humans can aspire too. May God bless your family as you walk in that love.

Boy she was a really young 85 in the top picture. Lovely pictures and tribute to your mother.

Laura, I didn't know... How blessed you are to have had her this long, but it's never easy to let go. What joy and peace she has on her countenance, and I see you in her face. What lovely pictures and wonderful tribute.
