I just wanted to say that Carol Theiss was the best mother a girl could ever ask for! Yeah, we may not have seen eye to eye on things and we had our rocky years, but she was always there for me when I needed here!! She was my best friend, my rock, the one I went to when I had something bothering me! I remember when I found out I was pregnant with my first child, Tristan. I was so scared to tell her because I was afaid she would be mad at me. Well, she wasn't thrilled, but she stood by me throughout the entire nine months. When his father and I broke up, she was right there to pick me up when I was down and told me that we would make it without him! She was there when I heard his heartbeat for the first time. She was there when I found out he was going to be a boy! She even helped me pick out his middle name. She chose Michael because it was her maiden name and none of her brothers had had any children so there wouldn't be anyone to carry on the Michael name. She was there for the 18 1/2 hours of labor on January 8, 1998 when Tristan Michael was born! And, she cried harder than I did!!! She was so proud of that little boy!! We moved in with her when Tristan was 3 weeks old and stayed with her until he was 2. Then, when I found out I was pregnant with my second child, Hayley, again, she was not very happy!! But she got over it and was excited to find out she was going to have another granddaughter! And, again, like with Tristan, she helped me decide on a middle name! We gave Hayley her middle name, Lynne! And, again, she was right there with me during labor, except this time she didn't stay for the whole thing since I had my husband there with me!! But she was there with Tristan when Hayley was born on November 9, 2001!! She was always there for the kids and for me and my little brother Matthew and his wife and kids! And she was always there for her mom and her brothers and sisters, and her friends! She was so loving to everyone! She never complained about the cancer, even on her bad days. She had the will to live and she fought up until her dying days, until the Lord finally asked her to join him in Heaven. He had something important for her to do there. She had done all she had to do here on Earth. She had raised her two children and had seen them married and have children of their own! She enjoyed her life and everyone in it, and if her death has taught me anything, it is to live life to it's fullest because you never know when the Lord will ask you to join him!! I made this site in honor of her, and to help me accept the fact that she is no longer here! It's tough, I mean, I have my days when all I wanna do is lie in bed and not get up and face the day because she isn't here. But I do it because I have two small children who need me!!! She pushes me to get up every morning and take care of those babies!!!
I wanna end this by saying that I loved my mother very much and I miss her so much! There isn't a day that goes by since November 29, 2004 that I haven't wanted to pick up the phone and call her, just to ask her something, only to realize that I can't do that anymore!!
I miss you Mom!! More than you will ever know!!!! Close
