1919 ~ 2013
A Love Letter to Mom:
Mom, you survived three wars (with your heroic companion of 67 years), birthed five children, lived on three continents, wrote six books, recorded a dozen tapes, and spoke to a million people. You shared many beautiful truths with the world. But, here's what we learned from you:
To love fiercely, and tell people before it's too late.
To be loyal, always.
To enjoy life - one bite at a time.
To laugh easily - with others and at yourself.
To smile (and always wear lipstick:)
If a problem can be solved with money, it really isn't a problem.
To be generous with your time, money, and heart.
To love ourselves
And to never forget that God adores us.
Mom, we know He adores us because you did. You taught it by precept and example. In a very conditional world you gave us pure and unconditional love.
So, how do we thank you? We can't. We can only love you in return.
Colleen & Jonathan, Mark & Lorraine, Bart & Stephanie, Paula & Dan, Gary & Lori, her beloved grandchildren, and Visi.
