Macy Mathis was not like the majority of her peers, who at her age often do not like spending time with their families. She put her family first in everything, and one year before she passed away, she started writing her mother letters. Her family was everything to her.
When her mother found the letters in her daughter’s room, she immediately began weeping.
It was greatest present her daughter had ever given her—25 sealed envelopes holding messages with themes for every occasion.
In order to make her mother feel better while she was having a horrible day, each letter addressed a different theme, such as restless nights, unpleasant days, and dismal weather.
As soon as Cindy spoke the phrase “Open when… you miss me,” which was one of the themes on the letters, she became completely unable to move.
Cindy was going through the emotional gamut at that moment: she was at a loss for words and wondered if the supportive letters that her daughter had sent to her would provide any solace to her.
In her letter, Macy said, “Hello, mum. I’m sorry if I’ve caused any disruption in your life, I’m hoping that everything is going well for you, regardless of where you are or what you’re doing at this exact now.
It’s likely that I do miss you as well. Really , I don’t like being away from home for a long time as I tend to get homesick very often. When I was younger and still lived with my dad, one of the things I looked forward to the most was spending time with you.
I feel that even though you always had excellent food at your house, the most of it was due to how much I was missing you. You may count on my eternal love and devotion, Mommy. I am thankful for all that you have done for me. The Mathis Apple”
