When I was going through my divorce and pregnant, my Mom was my birth coach, she went to the classes with me and coached me through labor & delivery. I don’t have pictures of her at the hospital because she was the one taking the pictures.

My Mom loved being with family, family picnics, family get togethers and she took us with her to her sister Muriel’s house a lot, the sisters would talk & talk.

Ahh Momma, you loved us all so much! I remember how you came to the hospital when Jesse was born and I am so glad you did! I didn't realize how much I would want my Mom when I delivered my first child. (and 2nd, 3rd ) You did so many kind things for my family over the years and I didn't appreciate you like I should have. 1 Corinthians 16:14 says; "Be completely humble and gentle, be patient, bearing with one another in love." Mom thank you for living out your faith and teaching us about Jesus. I remember going to Aunt Muriels and sitting under the kitchen table while you and your sisters laughed and joked; I thought - I want to be funny like my mom when I grow up. I also have fond memories, at Muriels of laying on the couch curled up behind your legs with my head on your hip while you ran your fingers through my hair. You loved to put our hair (not Danny) in pincurls and get your hair done at the beauty shop - but I remember you putting your brown hair in a cute little ponytail that curled under and some lipstick, that's how you dressed up.
