Amy in the Paradises
Amy was an astronaut in space. Amy was a woman of such resolve, that death could not hold her.
She flew away on the light of a star.
How Amy loved life, how she clung to life with all her might. She never gave up on life, and life never gave up on her.
In the end, to her final breath, she graced this world with her beauty and goodness. I never heard her complain that her time had come to go.
Amy was my Mother. A child like her never existed before. She was the first and only.
Amy Ederee is Mom in a spacesuit, on a fling through the solar clouds. The heavens never saw a woman the likes of my mother. Every son, every daughter, should love their mother as much as I loved mine.
I can only wonder. When I take my last breath, will someone, somewhere, love and miss me with the same utter conviction.
In my heart, I am of the persuasion that no finer woman ever walked the earth than my mother.
In my eyes, she was the epitome of a great Etruscan woman. She was kind, but firm, never losing a chance to be human. She was a logistical woman, yet always remembered that she was the love of my Dad’s life. She was loyal… faithful—she was a good Mom.
I’m honored to be the son of Amelia Fuentes Bolado.
