My mother and I share a lifetime of memories. Praise the Lord! Times were punctuated by bellows of laughter. We became estranged for a number of years but overcame our differences and reached reconciliation in time to spend a number of years in mutual love and support. My Mom was a special person. Daddy would announce each November 14th, "It's that Great American's birthday today!" Never got old, just made me grin from ear to ear, probably because he loved her strong, held her in high esteem. We all did. I could go on with stories and expressions of gratitude, respect and love for my mother. But I will simply say thank you to my brother Billy and sister in law, Joan, for their excellent care of Mom - making her final years comfortable and safe and, especially, for ensuring that she was able to pass peacefully at home in her sleep. Our family is comforted by the belief that she has rejoined our father. Thank you to her dear friends - you know who you are - for you meant the world to her. Finally, thank you Mom for my life, for all the good memories and love. Yes, I cherished our relationship and I will miss you every day. God Bless. Sheila Louise O'Regan, February 4, 2021
