Mom -

You were a wonderful person and a great mother to me and Jean. We could always count on you for love and support, no matter what we did, whether or not you approved of any specific action on our part.

I will miss our weekly telephone conversations that we conducted (more on than off) over a period of 44 years, even when neither of us had much of consequence to share. Just knowing that you were there and interested in talking was a comfort to me.

You lived a full life as the wife of a career US Air Force officer, living in many places in the US, Germany, and Japan, before settling down in San Diego. We had many adventures as a family of four while Dad was in active duty, then as members of a large, fluctuating group of relatives over the succeeding years.

You were pre-deceased by your parents and all four siblings. You are survived by your two children (& our spouses), 4 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. Many fond memories of you will continue to comfort us as we all age, but you will be missed.

All my love, - Bill.
