  1. Tribute for my Mother, Marie Lycan

    I would like to say that Mom was such a wonderful and beautiful person inside and out. I love her so very much and treasure every moment we have spent together. I have been unable to travel over the past few years due to health issues, and we have enjoyed a lovely long distance relationship. I could not be with my mom in person, but the call I made to her everyday was the bright spot of my day.

    When I was growing up, I knew I had the “best” mom. She could have not cared more than she did, or done more for her family than she did. How fortunate was I to have a guiding light as strong as mom. She exemplified the term Grace in every way.

    Mom has always meant so very much to me and my family, my husband Larry, my daughter Rachel, my son Michael, and all our our pets over the years.

    Her favorite thing in the world was to sit outside in her garden that she worked so hard on every single day. I will never forget my mother’s roses. They were almost as beautiful as she was. They were almost as beautiful as her heart.

    She was so kind and caring to everyone she encountered, I am so very Blessed to have had her in my life for all of these years. An angel truly got her wings and I am certain it will be quite the homecoming for her to be on the otherside.

    Her and my father are finally reunited after such a long time apart. She never lost her composure but I know how much she missed dad everyday. How did I get so lucky to have two people like that for my mom and dad.

    I miss you so much Mom, but I Praise God for having you as such a bright light in my life for so many years. You will be dearly missed.

    Your Loving Daughter,
