Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there! We have some mom's here on the site, but for the guys, hopefully you had something special planned for the ladies in your lives.

Numerous members of the San Francisco 49ers posted various messages to social media, and I thought I'd post some of them here. The toughest one had to be from guard Brandon Thomas. His mother passed away last November, so this is his family's first Mother's day without her. He posted something to Instagram. If you can't see his message below, here's what he had to say. Best wishes to him and his family on a tough day. Additional social media messages are posted below that.

Today is going to be pretty tough for my sisters and I. But so is every other day since we've lost our mother. There is absolutely no love in this world like the love of a mother. There is a void that cannot and will not ever be filled, no matter what anybody tells you. We don't miss her today any more than we will tomorrow, or the next day, or the day after that. Today, Mother's Day, is just another painful reminder that she is no longer physically here. Although I am a motherless son and my sisters are motherless daughters now, I still have a mom, and I celebrate that. I will for the rest of my life. She is just no longer physically next to me. I will continue to honor her life not only on Mother's Day, but for the rest of my life until I see her again. Of course I envy people who still have their mothers around, especially the ones around my age. My mother was so healthy then cancer comes in her life. I can't help but think of all she has missed so far and is going to miss. Renee, Mara, and I love you dearly. You sacrificed so much for us to be where we are right now in our lives.I love you mom, I know you're up there watching over all of us. Happy Mother's Day to a woman who gave it her all for her children and her grandchildren. You were our rock.
