My favorite memories of mom are when her and daddy used to come visit me, Anthony, Emma, and Chloe while we were living in Colorado. They would travel pulling their RV and would always stay at this one particular RV park just right outside the gate of Fort Carson. It was always so exciting driving to see them for the first time in a while. I could always count on mom to have her camera ready to snap pictures of Emma and Chloe as we pulled up. After sharing hugs, kisses, and maybe lunch or dinner together, Emma and Chloe would dance around in their RV to Polka music that mom and daddy seemed to never leave home without. Afterwards, we would all go walking around the park talking, laughing, and watching Emma and Chloe play at the campsite playground while mom took pictures of them. She was sure to never miss a kodak moment. Within the usually two week time period that they would stay in Colorado to visit, we never missed a day without seeing them. We would go site seeing just about every weekend and even weekdays if Anthony was off work. With several cameras always in tow, mom captured every moment of everyday we shared together during their visit. Thanks to her, I will always have those precious memories to look back on to remind me of all the amazing times we had together. I am sure we will one day be able to share those memories together again. Until then, you are in my heart forever mom.

On this photography adventure at the missions. I remember telling (commanding) you where to stop, smile , move over, turn, step on that rail, suck in your gut and your double chin and you broke out laughing so hard that you couldn't breathe. That made me laugh, I almost dropped the camera and had to find a restroom before I peed on myself. Very fun day!
I also told everyone that you were the one who was making me take your picture.
Because you were conceeded.

Dorky (mom),
A marriage license made you my mother in law, but because of your kindness and compassion you became my friend. A friend that knew things about me that no one else knew and they still don't.
We both liked taking pictures, gardening and picking on each other. O.K. well I picked on you and you would just smile and say "CINDI"! I should of felt bad but instead it made me happy. I think God definetly put you on this earth for my enjoyment.
I remember the first time I called you Dorky. I wasn't sure how you were going to react. Like every other time I picked on you, you just loudly said "CINDI" and I would laugh feel satisfied that I annoyed you and we'd go on with whatever we were doing. Since your reaction wasn't bad I just continued to call you Dorky.

God Blessed me when he picked you as my mother in law.
I will ALWAYS Love you and I won't let anyone forget you.
