She would have been 72 today...




Well, today is moms birthday. She always loved a party, loved people and just loved to visit. Mom loved life and always had a smile on her face (unless you made her mad and then she was not smiling and her eyes would get big and you knew you had crossed the line). Mom always had plenty of food just in case friends came over, she was everybody's mom. She was easy to talk to and always had great advice, even if you didn't realize it was great until you learned the hard way. We all have had so much happen in our lives and with our children and we all automatically want to pick up the phone to call and tell her. She was always excited to hear what her grandkids were up to. Even though she already knows and she is with us, knowing what we are going through. Well mom, I hope you are having a big party up there. Give eveyone hugs and kisses for us, and have grandpa bite your ears. Thanks for all you gave us, taught us and know you are always in our hearts and you are missed!!! We love you.

Thanks Bird for doing all this. I do miss her!!! I don't know why but this sure seems harder than last year for me. This helps ease a little of the pain and the melancholy that this brings on.

Love you all,

Dan

Thanks Robbin for all your hard work in doing this. I don't think that you enjoy it, it is just hard work!! It would be a nightmare for me. thanks!! It has been a long hard year for missing her. I wanted to have her physically at Zoey's wedding. The day I ordered the flowers and was asked how many grandmas to order one for each and I could only say one. That was hard, I cried for a long time. Now don't get to thinking that I'm going to b3 relly good at this, OK!! Love ya, Deb

I know you wanted her at Zoey's wedding, she would have loved it and I am sure she was there just not the way we wanted her. I know sometimes while I am doing this it brings tears to my eyes when I write about her and because I know she would have loved something like this and would have been so proud of her family. I do enjoy doing this and Matt is teaching me so much. Keep sending me all about your families. love you all. Robbin
