My mom was a wonderful person. She was my best friend. My laughing buddy. Everytime my parents and I got together we always made something seem funny. Whether it was or not. We found laughter and fun in everything we did together. I miss my mom and I going shopping together when dad was out fishing or out of town. I enjoyed looking through the clearance racks at Walmart with my mom while dad went to other part of the store. He never once complained. He would let us have our mom and daughter time. I have a hard time going to thrift stores or Walmart without having memories of her and I doing this. I miss our girl talks. She always knew what to say when I was having a bad day
