World's best Mom! Always just one step short of doing everything she wanted to do for her family. She always took pride in her family and struggled to give them everything she could.She could never say NO.She married Dad in 1947.He was the love of her life.When Dad died he took a bit of the flame for life out of Mom,but her family remained first,even above herself.Always a friend and a kind word for everyone.Rest with your sweetheart now Mom. You deserve the peace.

Note: Special note to MOM; It's funny Mom, how when a child grows up they always stay a small child in their eyes to their parents. I'm nearly 60 Mom, but I'll always be a little boy in my eyes to you.I love you,Mom. Your Loving Son, Chris
