- "I wasn't strong enough to save you, Mom. I wasn't strong enough. But I promise I won't fail again. I miss you...so much."
- ―Anakin Skywalker, during his mother's funeral
In 22 BBY, a funeral was held for Shmi Skywalker Lars at the Lars moisture farm on Tatooine. The funeral followed her death one month after being captured and imprisoned by Tusken Raiders. She was recovered from the Tusken Raider camp by her son, Padawan Anakin Skywalker, who returned her body to the Lars farm after slaughtering the Tuskens within the camp. Shmi was buried at the farm with a gravestone marking her grave. The gravestone was later removed by her stepson, Owen Lars.[source?]
