To our darling Amma,
You are too precious to be forgotten,
And too priceless to be ever replaced.
You were one in a million, and you’ll always be
Our angel who loved us, cared for us and guided us throughout our life,
Even though you may not be here to hug or hold,
The warmth of your energy will never leave us.
The pain of you leaving was unbearable
But I know God saw that he was missing an angel
He put his arms around you and asked you to come back as your work was done on Earth
I’m sure Thaththi might have something to do with it
As both of you shared a love so rare there are no words to explain the bond between you two.
You were the sunlight in our family
You were the tree we all leant on
You were the apple of my father’s eyes
You made us feel safe no matter what troubles were there
You baked us cakes, made us fried rice in the morning, walked us to school, helped Thaththa throw parties every weekend
You taught us right from wrong and instilled us with good values
You always put our needs ahead of yours and unconditionally loved us
You made sure we were never hungry and also anyone who visited our home left with a full stomach
You complimented Thaththi in so many ways to ensure every house we lived in was a warm home full of beautiful memories.
This is not goodbye
We know your energy will continue to be all around us showering endless, unconditional love
You are free now Ammi to be the vibrant, adventurous energy you are; who was a champion sportswoman, adventurous & deep lover, caring mother and one of the most loved people in her family who all called you “nanga”
Even though you are out of sight,
We will always look up at the sky and know you will always be there high up in the clouds for Pinky and I
You will live forever in our hearts & we will love you, cherish you and remember you always.
We miss you Ammi
