There are so many things to say about Mom that it is difficult to begin. She was a homemaker through and through. After her stroke and no longer able to prepare meals we often brought food over. She would invite us to the table to eat, make sure that everyone had all they needed and of course after dinner there was to be dessert. She often had trouble putting sugar into her own coffee near the end, but that everyone else was taken care of never left her for a moment. Rest in peace mom and know that I will eat enough, faithfully have dessert and think of you often.
Happy tears for a long, wonderful life! Take Care, Joey and Del
What a great experience of having an Aunt and Uncle so caring and welcoming for 70 years - almost like a second set of parents. Always fun to visit, sharing their home, lots going on, cousins to hang out with. Memories to last a lifetime.
Watching Mom from the dining room window, “skiing” down the backyard slope, hilarious!
Her surprising me by knowing how to drive a stick shift when Don’s truck needed to be moved. Who knew she could do that?
Watching her lay out a pattern on fabric, squeezing it close to eliminate waste, and getting to wear the outfit the next day. Magician extraordinaire.
Going home from visits with a carload of goodies, home canned veggies and a few things she thought I could use. Thoughtful.
Learning to take a container of soup to sick or grieving friends rather than saying “call me if you need anything “.
Laugh, learn, and be of service. Really useful life lessons.
