My Tribute: I was only 22 when I had my only daughter.
She was such a precocious and gorgeous baby. We did everything together and had tons of fun. Even though I had no experience caring for an infant, it came easily to me because she was just so happy..all the time. I was married but although my husband was "in" the home he was never "present ", if that makes sense. Later in life we were also best friends. These last ten years tho' were such a 180• I realize now, particularly in the final 4 years, she was pushing me away so I went into denial until I lived every day scared to death ..and by then it was too late. I loved Joy so much. We knew each other better than anyone else- and selfishly too, I miss her love.. how much she loved her Mama.
