Mom was always there for Sharon and me. She was always there for us to share in laughter and with a shoulder to cry on. Mom was known for "pushing food" on everyone...even when you already had more than one serving; she would insist that you have more! Nobody went hungry in this family. All of her family meant the world to her and she passed that value of life on to us -- love and family. She wanted everyone to get along and could not stand any discourse among family members. Mom will be missed but we are so blessed to have been able to spend so many years with her and watch her journey to heaven. Dad waited patiently for her to join him and now they are together again, as it should be.
