Mother would love all the sweet comments by everyone. I will never regret leaving California to be with her in Kirbyville. I've had 13 yrs with her that I will never forget. I have wonderful memories of her and Aunt Ida eating breakfast on my river house porch and her birthday party at Casa Ole shortly before she died. I love her dearly and will think of her every day for the rest of my life. I am so grateful to God for the peaceful time he gave me with her before she passed. When I sit on my porch, I will always remember our cups of coffee together and her and Aunt Ida's laughter as she would wave at the neighbors as they drove by. I miss her deeply. Life will never be the same without her. I love you mama.
