She was a beautiful Irish rose who stole the heart of everyone she met, especially our Dad when he first saw her big blue eyes and wonderful soul. She was an engaging and captivating conversationalist, and she treated everyone she met with respect and kindness. She had tremendous warmth, kindness, and deep faith. She became a nurse in her late teens. She was an incredibly talented and respected nurse and mid-wife. As an operating room nurse, she worked side by side with the world's most prominent heart surgeons of the time, Dr. DeBakey and Dr. Cooley. She was devoted to her patients for 10 years and then turned that devotion into her growing family.

Mom, enjoy your reunion with Dad. You are in our hearts now and always.
