I was blessed by God to have her in my life for the past 60 years. She filled me with a love for animals, art and nature in all its forms. She showed us how to carry on even in the most difficult of situations starting with the death of our father back in '69. She took care of us the best she could and we lacked nothing. she taught us to work hard, how to be independent and how to take time out to appreciate all the beauty and good things in life. She loved working with her hands painting, knitting, doing macrame, building sheds patios, refinishing basements, taking care of her flowers and yard. the list goes on. Now she's back together with our dad who's been in heaven now these past 50 years. Love you forever mom!
