Rest in Peace Mother. You are now with your best friend, the Lord and those of the family that preceded you. Give them all a hug for me.
I am sorry I was not able to keep you from dying in a nursing home. I did try! I have missed our daily phone conversations!
As a college student at 64, I see how much you taught me, things kids now days are lacking. You taught me how to solve a problem, how to have passion for life, how to look for the good in people and overlook their failings, how to give your word and keep it.
At 16 I thought you did not know much. At 30 I realized you had become amazingly smarter! It is amazing how that works.
Thank you for raising me. Thank you for teaching me so much. Thank you for being my Mother! I shall miss you!
