Generous. Smart. Caring. These are the words that come to my mind to describe my mom.
Mom wasn’t just the person who raised me; she was also one of my closest friends. She was always ready to listen to my stories. She gave me advice. She was my hero.
In May 2011, mom was diagnosed with cancer. The news came to my sister and me while we were on the dining table celebrating her birthday. Imagine how shocked we were.
Mom underwent medical treatments, and things got better. From 2012 to 2014, she lived a relatively normal life.
In the beginning of this year, however, the cancer returned. It got worse after mom’s birthday in May.
Mom passed away on the early morning of July 15. She was 60.
Rest in peace my beloved mommy. I love you so much.
