There is never a minute or second of the day that i don't think of you mom. The day you left for your Heavenly home to be with Daddy and Joan and Danny, i held your hand till your last breath, you took a piece of me with you. I listen to hear your voice to see you walk through the house or just watch you sleeping in your chair, no one will ever know the pain of losing you that i feel. I love you Momma and miss you dearly.

My mother loved polished hardwood floors with a brilliant shine so she would wax the floor down on her knees and when it dried she would put one of us on an old large cloth and drag us around the room making a game out of it and at the same time putting a shine on the floor . We laughed and had such a good time . She was a hard working mother who loved to bake and sew , There were many dresses she made for myself and Joan . My mother was a wife , mother , nurse and teacher and friend . I will miss her sweet laughter and her telling me she loved me . I will always cherish those memories of her . I love you momma ♥️
