I am very fortunate to have such a wonderful mother. She was career oriented when most women stayed home to take care of the family. She instiled in us kindness, honesty, compassion, thinking of other's, good work ethic and so much more. She touched so many lives in her 77 years . I enjoyed every single moment of taking care of her. It was a honor to pay back everything she did for me. I am going to miss our discussions, her advisement, our love of theater and musicals, trips to Foxwoods. Holidays with the O'Neil's and Jones's, trips with Joan's Travel Group. Singing the oldies in the car, trips to visit dad's grave and picking up flowers for the yard. I love you mom.
