Mom’s life was filled with struggles, but she was steadfast, hard-working, always caring for others,
compassionate, giving and/or sharing anything she had if someone needed it, including me I might add,
and thankful for every blessing she had. She made the best of a very hard life with love for all even those
who mistreated her or took advantage of her. It would be hard to choose which of these admirable
qualities would be at the top of my list for being most admired. I would have to say selflessness and
caring for others.
I wish I could tell her how much I respect her and love her for all she did for me personally and our
family, both immediate and extended. I didn’t realize how much she sacrificed for us and loved us. I
honestly don’t think I told her often enough that I loved her. I guess you can never say it enough, but as
a child, you don’t realize that until it’s too late. I hope she knows now, and I am looking forward to to
giving her the biggest hug ever!
