What I loved most about my mom (Marilyn Moreau) was her goodhearted, patience and gentle spirit. She was a caring and kind person. I rarely saw her get too upset over anything, nor did I ever hear her use profanity or speak ill of anyone. Whenever I did something wrong, she was understanding and quick to forgive.
It was a challenge for me when growing up, to get a rise out of her by my shenanigans. Not having a father around, I guess you could say that I took advantage of the situation, but she knew how to handle me and also knew when I was telling the truth or lying. Even though it’s been many years since she passed, I still miss her. She was my best friend and teacher.
My mom and I have a different relationship now. She’s my guardian angel, that watches over me twenty four/seven. Every now and again, she’ll let me know she’s still with me by showing up in my dreams or leaving dimes or flickering the lights and I find comfort in that. Love you Mom! Thanks for being there for me always. Xoxo’s

From my own personal experience, yes I believe they can become our special guardian angels. While at my mom’s memorial service, a woman pulled me aside as we were exiting the church after the service. The lady was my school mates mom. She asked me if I believed in angels. I said, “Yes”. Then she told me that we all have a guardian angel with us and went on to say that my mom is now another special guardian angel that will be with me always.
As I continued to walk out of the church, my eyes widen with fright because I was fifteen years old and I haven’t even started getting into half the trouble I got into while she was living. I thought, I can’t hide anything from my deceased mom. What sort of influence can my departed mom have on me? Plenty, the book I wrote called Having fun with God; A book report for Miss. Winfrey is living proof that our loved ones do become our guardian angels because I know my mom helped produce it. Ever since this great insight, I stopped grieving my mom’s death as much and I’m grateful that she is still with me in spirit.
