Mom has many talents and she didn’t mind sharing those talents with others... dancing, bowling, bookkeeping, humor, fun-loving spirit, and a great listener! She lit up any room she showed up in as she had that infectious smile and dancing blue eyes that warms the heart. She had a way of turning a sad day into a fun day with lots of laughter. She will be greatly missed by many in this lifetime, but I know she is with us in spirit watching over us and praying for our eternal souls in which we will be reunited in Heaven.

I have many wonderful memories of my Mom, but above all she was my buddy, my co-pilot, my shopping companion, my dining companion when we sought out new restaurants, my counselor, and my champion. She was always lifting up my sister, Jan, and me no matter what we did in life. She thought we were the smartest two girls in the world...her words. This photo is one my favorite ones of her at Christmas of 1984. She looked so regal and very much like a movie star to me. When she danced, or bowled, or did just about anything, she always did it with dignity, even if she could really end up in an embarrassing situation. That's what made her so special and so delightful to all who knew her. We all have our own special stories about Mom. I suppose someday my sister and I will need to write a book. To say that I will miss her would be an extreme understatement. I only hope that the years to come will allow me to fill the enormous void that her passing has created. We also lost our 12 1/2 year old dog, Daisy, just 3 weeks after Mom. We believe that she missed Mom too and is with her now, entertaining her in heaven with all her little antics. We love you both and will miss you so much, along with Dad and all of our dear family & friends that have gone before us. Rest in peace in heaven, Mom, with all of God's blessings and we'll see you when He says it's our time too.
