Brand building through storytelling

My Mother – Maria Griffith

My beloved mother, wife, grandmother, and friend passed away July 18, 2011. I miss her so very much. She was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Of all days, my mother passed away on her grandson’s birthday. Sitting right next to her on the couch. I witness her take her last breath. The relief on her face from all the pain. Even though I was giving her pain medicine around the clock. It was not enough. I wished that I could have taken her pain away, and given it to myself. I just sat there and rubbed her stomach and back. I rested my head on her shoulders and listened to her heart beat. My mother leaves a legacy and I hope to continue to carry it for the rest of my life. My mother is 84 years old and a native of Republic Of Panama. Thank you for reading my story.
