Mom there are so many memories growing up. We would go outside to the peach orchard and make dust storms. We had so much dirt in our hair you would line us girls up in the tub and shampoo our hair. I don't remember getting in trouble so of course we would do it again. When it was wash the sheets day that meant we found our cats dressed them in doll clothes and put them to bed in the sheets it still amazes me that they stayed there. I watched you make jelly, bread pudding and many other things every time I asked you for a recipe you'd say a little of this a little of that. I inherited your cooking skills but no matter how hard I try I'm not a very good gardener. I can cut out those dandelions out of the lawn just like you did though and the best way is on your butt.

You were a wonderful mom. It was an honor to take care of you in your final days just like you always took care of us. I miss you so much but I take comfort in knowing I'll see you again one day. There's a new angel in heaven.

Mom, You taught me so many things in life. You taught me to sew. I made many beautuful clothes for my girls like you did for us. You taught me how to crochet and shared your crocheting books with me so i could learn new stitches. You taught me how to embroider. I still have the crib blanket i embroidered when i was pregnant with Tina. Its one of my biggest embroidery pieces. You taught me how to do cross stitch and latch hook rugs. You passed along to me your love of flowers and gardening. You taught me that the easiest way to pull weeds was on your butt. I have pulled many many weeds scooting around on my bottom. The best thing you ever taught me was how to be a great mom. Thank you Mom for everything and for teaching me to love unconditionally. I will love you forever.
