Poem from Kristian Anderson:
Mom....Love is just a surface word for the condition of thought that I have for you mom. You see the institution of language has not scripted an adjective to describe the emotions that fill my soul when I reminisce of you.
No job could ever pay me enough to equal to the amount I need to reward you for what you have done for me. Your love is the light to the path of my future... I'm never lost. Funny, I shadow your steps as a child and look up to you.
Your energy nourishes me in every way yet man has titled me ......YOUR SON.
Poem from Taita Anderson:
To my loving mother Sharon, you are a kind hearted, warm, giving and high spirited special human being any daughter could ever want in her life. You are my everything. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I will see you again someday. May God bless you. I love you with all my heart and soul. Yours truly, Taita.
