Mom, you were such a hard working woman who helped so many people, family and friends. I recall many living with us as I grew up even though we didn't have alot, you helped anyone who asked! Most of them remembered your kindness and respected you for all you sacrificed for them and those that didn't, you forgave. You were always a pretty straight forward person with a sense of humor and you were an amazing cook! Oh how you loved to gather, whether it be holidays, birthdays or just a Sunday, gathering was your favorite thing! You enjoyed the Grandkids and loved to play board games with them. We'll miss your antics and stories of old as well as your love of music. I'll miss our 2-3 hour phone calls and your wit! You always seemed to make a heartache lighter. I know you're breathing through flawless lungs and skipping painlessly from one loved one to the next but mostly I know you're so happy to be with them once again! I'll see you again one day and we'll skip together... Love you Mommy, Sis
