Song of Style

Momma T



Those of you following me on Instagram may already know this, but my second mom passed away a few days ago. Momma T was battling brain cancer for the past year and God decided he needed her. She made a career out of helping people in need and when she retired she decided to help out animals and ran STAR, an animal charity, full time. Although her life was cut short, it was definitely a very fulfilling life as she’s touched so many people and animals’ hearts and did more good than anyone I know. She was selfless, always super positive, really goofy, and never took life too seriously even till the end. She was my number one supporter and got excited for me every time I told her about my upcoming projects and I know she’ll be rooting for me in heaven. I’m so grateful for all of the time I got to spend with her and all of the memories I have of her. I’ll forever cherish them even though they bring tears to my eyes.

Momma T never had any platform like me where she could influence people, but she did anyways. I can’t tell you how many people she has helped and how many dogs she has saved. I believe that God has a purpose for all of us and I don’t know all of what God has planned out for me, but I know one of the reasons he has given me a platform like this blog and an audience like you all is because he wanted me to spread good and be an influencer. I know this blog is mostly all about my personal outfits and some interior design projects but I hope through this platform I’m also able to influence you guys to help the ones in need, be selfless at times, and help animals. Like Anne Frank famously said, “No one has ever become poor by giving.”

I know my momma probably didn’t have any regrets when looking back at her life. No shame, no regrets, but full of accomplishments. Rest in peace Momma T. I love you so much and always will. I really hope you’re in heaven sipping a slippery monkey on a warm beach. Thank you for everything and I miss you so much.

P.S. In honor of Momma T, Wesley Mason and his uncle started a foundation called Thompson-Mason Brain Cancer Foundation dedicated to helping low-income brain cancer patients get the treatment they deserve. It’s mostly for travel expenses to hospitals since Momma T had to travel out of state numerous times to visit hospitals and that didn’t come cheap. Should you like to donate, you can donate here.

  10. Stay strong! Momma T sounds like a true animal loving and very selfless. I know people just like Momma T, strong and always willing to help anybody in need. I am so glad both of us got to meet people like this. We should feel blessed. I am also an animal lover hence my name H.A.F. Addict, Health. Animals. Fashion. I started this blog due to my three passions in life. I hope my blog can touch, inspire people out there just like Momma T did.

  11. So sorry for your loss. The words you’ve written here are truly beautiful, it’s amazing that you’ve chosen to make something great of her memory.

  12. Ah man, this post is really breaking my heart
    as my mum passed away 2-3 years ago.
    From a quite similar illness as my mum
    suffered from a brain tumor. It sucks.
    She sure sounded like a warm lovely
    person c: Xx

  13. I’m so sorry for your loss, Aimee. You’re a gem yourself and not many bloggers are as transparent and genuine as you are, and I’m sure she was just as well. I bet she’s looking down on you from heaven since she was such a giving lady (although I’ve never met her) and I’m sure she’d love to see you prosper and work harder on everything great that you do.

  14. I’m so sorry for your loss. Your words touched me so deeply that I had to read the post in fragments, otherwise I would have cried, or even sobbed. I have troubles finding the right words for you right now, but I do feel that you were lucky to have had her in your life, as she was so inspirational as a person. You continue her legacy in inspiring people through your blog, through your personality. Warm thoughts to you and yours and her whole family/families, hugs from Switzerland,

    God is great. Its amazigne to see how strong you’re because of his grace :)

  18. Awwmee, I’m sure Momma T continues to shine and smile because she’s at a place where there’s only warmth, happiness, and voices of angels singing. She’s now in God’s hands, maybe chatting to Him about plans to continue helping others up there? ;)

    Hugs and kisses,

    I’m sure she had a good heart such as you do Aimee! She’s now at a better place looking down to you and will always be with you in your heart. I’m so sorry for your loss and know how you feel as one year ago I lost my grandfather which was such a positive and good person too. Thinking about him makes me sad every time because I know I will never see him again. All the best, Aimee.

  20. Very touching.
    I find it great that you use your blog not only too share outfits but also to share messages filled with humanity and good values.

    I hope she can hear your words from where she is now and wish you courage.
