The older I get, the more I appreciate my mother...

Even when Mother was bedridden and in a lot of pain, she had a smile, an encouraging word and a great attitude.
Mother always had fun and a great laugh; she appeciated the lighter side of life.

Mother was beautiful on so many levels.

Mother loved her kids and and grand kids and great grand kids.

I miss you so much.

    Happy Birthday, momma! I love and miss you so much too!

    Beautiful tribute, Jolene, you definitely captured our precious momma!

    We can only carry on her loving traditions in her name, that's what she would want, don't you think?

    Love you, Jo Jo!michelle1218

    Yes, she would want that for all of us. Mother was a survivor; no matter what life threw her way, she moved forward with a thankful spirit.
