- Karen Druffel was my mom and it saddens me to say that I loved her with all my heart and soul. She wasnt sick and so her passing away was a shock to us all. I wasn't given a chance to say goodbye to her and to let her know just how much she meant to me. To be able to tell her that she was going to be missed so much. Just to be able to tell her without her raising me giving me everything she could and teaching me all I would need to go on with my life when she was no longer with me. Yes I know she knew all this but I hadn't said it in a long time. She gave me all her knowledge and all that I would need to go on without her. Knowing that when her time came to go and be with her lord and savior I would be able to finish the rest of my time here on earth knowing that she taught me how to continue life without her. She was a stronger woman than anyone could ever imagine. She lived her life and she went through things that no should have to go through. But with every step she took she learned to be nothing but strong and never did she complain. My mom was my here, when things went bad she stood strong. My mom helped anyone that she could. She will be missed so very much and my heart will never be the same without her in it. Mom I love and miss you so very much. I didn't get the chance to let her know that I was sorry for all the heartache that I put her through. I only wish I could have one more day with my mom so I could tell her how much I owed her for everything that she did for me. When I was fighting for my life she was there for me and she went out of her way and put me before any of her needs. She was my strength when I was told that I was dying. She did everything that she could for me. She was everything that I couldn't be, she kept me and my children going when I was to sick to do it myself. She gave all and for this I will always be indeded to her. When I wasn't able to do for myself, she made sure it got done. Not once did she ask for anything in return. She kept me going when I myself could not do it. She helped me fight for life when I had no fight left in me. She carried me through this battle when I was to weak to carry myself. When I was given a death sentence, she to was given the same sentence. Without her giving me everything she could I don't think that I would have won the battle. When I could no longer get up and fight, she carried me through it all. She never let me give up, I will always owe my mom my life because not only did she give me life once, she gave me my life again. Thank you mom. I love you.
