This was my mother and the "rock" of my life. Although she was widowed at a young age she never remarried. She carried on with her life, raised her children and loved one man. She was bound to be hurting at times, but we lived in a world of happiness and laughter. I like to say that my memories of growing up are in a world where the sun was always shining. She was a unique woman. She was a very strong hearted woman in a little petite body. Thank God for moms like this one.
