Mom...Thank you for giving me life and loving me with all your heart. Thank you for all the lessons you’ve taught me all my life...even at the end of yours. Thank you for teaching me the importance of family and how to be a good Mom and grandmother. I cherish and hold deep in my heart...every single moment we’ve shared since the day I was born. Being the oldest of 8 was the bond that fused us together, and nothing will ever change that. My heart is breaking, knowing we’ll never play bingo or 31 again, and no more manicures or watching Jeopardy together while enjoying a Frosty from Wendy’s. I’ll never forget hearing your voice as we walked through the backdoor from school...yelling for the four of us (the oldest ones)...to change our clothes and come downstairs...cause we had made a mess of the basement & you were on a mission to get it cleaned up. I’ll always remember walking up to the laundromat, to help clean up at the end of the day...& let’s not forget us kids having to take turns helping with laundry for 10 at the laundromat, because we abused the washer & dryer and you swore you wouldn’t fix them if they broke down. You kept THAT promise. Thank you for all the memories my kids have of you, because you loved them SO much. Thank you for ALL the popcorn & card games at the kitchen table for SO many years...gosh we had fun...& we never wanted those evenings to end. I only wish the last years of your life weren’t such a struggle for you. It was so hard to see the simple things become so difficult for you Mom, but we all tried to make you comfortable...& Dad was determined to be the best caregiver any wife could ask for. Your night in shining armor did his very best and NEVER complained. These last few months were hell for you and I will always wish we would have brought you home one more time...that’s all you wanted was to be in your own home😔. But God took you to His home, where you’ll never suffer again. My eyes are full of tears Mom & I will miss you terribly😢
