ADD A MEMORY

One of the earliest memories I have of Mom is from our first day at Lighthouse Christian School in the fall of 1980. Mom gave us our school supplies... glue, crayons, and some brand new pencils. They were shiny with flat erasers that hadn't yet corrected a mistake, sharpened to a point that could pop a balloon.

When I got to my desk, I put my brand new pencils into a cup, excited about breaking in those sharp points. When we started working on our first lesson, I reached for my pencil. Before I could touch it to the page the teacher said, "Dear, we do not use those kind of pencils. Here," she said as she walked to me with a handful of something, "use these instead." She handed me a few used, chunky, black pencils. All I could think was, "Hey! But those are the pencils my mom gave me." I put them in the cup with the others.

I used those ugly black pencils, but only because the teacher told me to. Who was this lady who thought she knew better than my mom? Her pencils weren't near as nice as my mom's. The erasers were worn down and they were speckled with the teeth marks of the kids who had used them before me. The pencils my mom gave me were shiny and new, with the names of baseball teams on them. This lady didn't love me as much as my mom.

We only went to that school for a few months before we moved back to Lyons and I finally got to use my wonderful pencils. I held on to them for years. Sometimes I would find one in a box or under my bed. Whenever I saw them I thought back to that day. Over the years those pencils became a symbol of the wonderfully loving, caring, and selfless person that Mom is. She always wanted the best for us and did everything she could to give it to us. I will always admire her for her strength, courage, and her wonderfully enormous heart.

Now, whenever I pick up a wooden pencil I think of Mom and that first day of school. It reminds me of what is really important.

You may hold my hand for a while, but you hold my heart forever

My strength comes from you and the amazing woman and mother you always were. I know you’ll always be with us and will continue to watch over us like you always have. No more worries and no more pain. Until I see you again mama, I love you

Mom seemed to have an infinite supply of patients. She never lashed out in anger. She was always mindful of the feelings of others. She always wanted to be helpful and do special things for those she cared about. She was a consummate cheerleader and relished in her family's successes. And shared the pain of defeats. She was funny. She was caring. She had a beautiful soul. I wonder sometimes if I decided not to have children because I couldn't be the kind of mom she was. I will carry her with me everyday.

Grandma was always so proud of everything we accomplished. She was so excited and so happy for me when she found out I was able to study abroad in Italy this semester. I know she wanted me to have fun and see the world and travel just as her and Papa did. Now everything I see, and everywhere I go, will be for her.

Pat was a wonderful mother-in-law to me for 15 years and beyond. I never once saw her angry and she was always upbeat and cheerful. She was selfless in all of her actions and cared deeply for her family. Her and Tom were the proud grandparents when Jordan and Allison came along, and enjoyed many great memories as they watched and helped them grow into the beautiful women they are today. I am so thankful to have been a part of her life, and to have been graced by her love and support. She raised a wonderful mother, in Melissa, to my children and I am forever in her debt. Heaven has truly gained an angel.

Our Family grew up in Timber Lake with Patricia's Family. My Family had the grocery store,. We attended the Catholic Church with her Mom, Dad & Family. Pat's Mom stayed at our house in High School. My parents always talked about what a wonderful Lady your Grandmother Anna was and I can see your Mom in your Grandmother. My brother, Benj, would have been a classmate of your Mom. She came from a devout Catholic Family and understood she would be transitioning to Heaven and would see all of those who went before her and would see you all again. I could tell you had a great Mom like your Grandma Anna. You can send me your Mom's frosting recipe. I would love to have it. Anna was a hard working lady. A wonderful wife, mother Grandmother and Domestic Engineer!!!! Your Mom has reached her Victory of Eternal Life....You will see her again. Thinking of your Mom and the Love she had for all of you. Your Mom has red hair like your Grandma Anna. God's continued Love to all of you. Barb (barbara@rapidnet.com for the Frosting Recipe.)

Mom made the best Christmas cookies! When we were kids, she baked and we kids frosted using her homemade frosting. My sisters and I worked with the recipe she gave us but we could never duplicate it.
