Our years in Cedar Rapids with Tom and Myrna and our group of friends were some of the best times in our lives! Myrna was always there if someone needed something! Her spirit and sense of humor made every moment together special and fun! Our kids were very close to her as well and she even babysat them for a while. Making noodles with her is a memory I will cherish!

What can I say about the greatest Mom in the world? We all have them. But I guess my Mom was special to me because she was my Mom. She was the biggest part of my life. When all else failed you went to Mom. And she would be there. Every time. Eat some food , let’s talk. I didn’t want to talk. But the food was talk enough. And there would be small talk. But you knew going away, you had food and you knew you were loved. And that’s what I will always miss. And I will miss her dearly. She is now with my father. And they belong together now. And I could never be the man i am now without either one of them. I owe them everything. I love you both. You are now together. And I can only hope that I can make you proud. You both are my rocks. I will cherish what you did for me forever.
