A Love Letter to our Mom

Dear Mom:
You were a strong woman who loved life and enjoyed helping others in need. You had a gentle heart helping us solve any troubles we brought to you. The wisdom you shared was both soft love and at times tough love. You gave food to those of us who were hungry; your last dollar when we were broke, and prepared meals at any time of the day whenever we visited you.
You were at times our fierce defender and stood for us during times of any injustice. It was nice knowing you were in our corner.
You loved being around your friends and family bringing us together for holidays and non-holidays; possibly your favorite thing was seeing all your grandchildren and watching them grow up, usually all of them at once! Proof of these things was the dozens of photo albums you put together throughout the years.
You enjoyed sewing together quilts, embroidering pillowcases and dishtowels taking them to the Senior Center while visiting with your lady friends. Mainly, you gave away what you created. We can attest to having more towels, pillowcases and blankets than we needed.
You loved canning, gardening, planting flowers and picking berries for jelly; many you gave away...
You endured poverty, being without food, and there were times you did not know where we would get our next meal...but somehow you would find a way to feed and clothe us.
You endured many losses of loved ones throughout your life; losing your Grandma Lena, your mom, dad and youngest daughter nearly broke you, yet you remained to have a loving heart. You were always there for us Mom and we are not sure we can do this without you...but we learned from you how to endure.

We will always love and respect you.

Shane, Monica, Valerie, Denise, Wade, Marty, and Connie
