Amazing both photos, 70 years apart, have the same smile, same shape of the mouth and the same hairline.

YOU are BEAUTIFUL MOM!

Love,
Birdie

Mom,

If you spell MOM upside down it is WOW.

Thank you for all of your hard work over the years. You have done so much for all of your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, your church and others.

Bennett said, "THAT'S A GREAT JOB GRANDMA RITA.", when you were drawing the bunnies, mouse and flowers just a few days ago for him and Kate.

Well, GREAT JOB indeed as our mom, a volunteer member of Epiphany and as a person.

THANK YOU for all you have done for others:
Working at Epiphany's State Fair restaurant, serving funeral luncheons at Epiphany, making baby hats for three hospitals, lap blankets for the VA, making scarfs, hats, jackets, matching pj's and bonnets, stuffed bears, stuffed monkey puppets, baby blankets, burp cloths, dish towels, crocheted dish cloths, donations of stuff to the schools (Since you never threw anything out.), especially those things to the art room and SO MUCH MORE.

To comfort you I sang the song you and dad liked to dance to, THE TENNESSEE WALTZ. (Bet you were happy when it was found on a CD.) Now you and dad are dancing again in heaven.

It was so sad driving away from your home on New Year's Day. It is now just a house without you being there.

One of Albert Einstein's many theories is: "ALL LIVING THINGS HAVE ENERGY AND WHEN THAT LIVING THING DIES THAT ENERGY IS RELEASED AND IS ALWAYS PRESENT." I believe that life's energy is your spirit or soul.

I see you when I look into a mirror. You and I are very much alike.

I LOVE YOU.
