Mom- you were the best! I have so many great memories, but I still wish we had more time. As I go through pictures, I now have questions.... Who was the guy who signed your yearbook..'to the girl I didn't mean to stand up'? Well, I'm glad he did because then you had a chance to meet dad. It was hard being the family that moved away from our New York family, but we had great experiences: Florida - beaches, Kentucky - a pet store, Ohio- a swim team that traveled, and Arkansas- the natural state (and high school shenanigans for me). P.S. Thx for pulling the chair up to the front door to confront me when I came home late. I now know how much you cared. I went to Kansas and you moved to Texas. We didn't get together often, but we talked weekly on the phone. I'm glad I talked you into moving up here. Then, 2 months later, my life changed forever. Thx for being there for me. You are never too old to need your mom. And you were there for me. I love you now and I'll love you forever. I miss you mom.
