We her children would like to thank you god, for the gift of a wonderful mothers life to us for the last 46, 41 and 38 years.
From her son:
You taught me how to walk, and you taught me how to talk.
You provided a roof over my head, and always made sure I was feed.
You taught me morals and standards, the meanings of living and all about giving.
What a wonderful, beautiful, thoughtful intelligent mother I have, and you make me truly glad.
You always go out of your way for everyone each day.
You always listen to what I say even if I'm having a bad day.
Whenever I've had issues you have always been my tissues.
You always hugged me tight, and loved me with all your might.
You were always there for me when I needed someone.
I'm so very thankful to have a mother like you, with your kindness and all that you do.
All these words are perfectly true, and mother, I love you.
