Mom was the best Mom in the world! She was an Air Force wife which means every three to four years we had to move to another assignment. She knew how to take care of herself even though her husband, James, passed away 33 years ago. She still lived in the same house and took care of it until 2013 when I brought her to Indianapolis. I will miss her.

Aunt Mary,
I always enjoyed your and Uncle Jim's visits home to Indiana when I was a child.
Then when you moved back to Indiana after Uncle Jim passed away, I always enjoyed our visits with you....bringing my Dad...your baby visit you along with my brother, sister and my daughters.
I wish it could have been more often, but life and our job schedules got in the way.
We will see you again one day!
Love you always,

Mary a dear friend and neighbor, was someone it was always great to see her smiling face after getting back from the road. she would ask what job I was shooting, always asked me about the shows, and when they would be on the air so she could see my credits, as big a fan as my folks. but mostly wanted to talk about politics, who I had talked to lately, her biggest thrill was when I went to Carson City and wrote a bill on roofing companies that we're praying on windows in the neighborhood, that she brought to my attention, as she wanted to know every step along the way to it's passage as a NV law. But my best rememberances was my favorite cookies she would bake for me, for when I returned from an extended road trip, I'm sure the angels will be salivating over those chocolate chip cookies in heaven, tom...
