Today is Mom's 90th birthday and I still miss her as much now as when I first moved out at 18 years old. You see, my mom was always my rock. The one stabilizing force in my turbulent life during my younger years. The unconditional love she always showed, the forgiving nature she always had for all of her children. No matter how much trouble we caused or trouble we got into. She was always there for us. Sure, she would get mad but she always forgave. Something she tried to instill in all of her children. I remember her especially with Grandma and Aunt Gloria sitting in someone's kitchen drinking their coffee and smoking. Trying to keep us kids outside so they could have a little break and a moment of peace. When I became an adult and struck out on my own she always embraced and never judged. She welcomed Glen into her life and into the family as if he was one of her own. It's the one thing I'm most happy with. And now, I still reach out to her whenever I'm troubled, knowing that she will always stir me in the right direction.
Happy Birthday Mom. I miss you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM, 90 today. I'm still trying to catch up with you. I've made it to 71. Your love for me was my whole world. I no my teen years were not easy for you, they weren't for me. You wood love my great-grand kids. Only 2, well not true Rebelanne is helping raise her b-friends daughter. So she is our family also along with her dad. Ur birthday has so many memories. I always put Mother's Day n ur birthday together. Sometimes they were the same day. I really loved those years. You were the queen of Jack's. Your delicate fingers with beautiful long nails. No body could beat you. LOL. And no body ever had a harsh voice or ugly things to say about you. Well maybe I did in anger. Ronnie n I loved it wen you gave us both 50 cents n he n I would walk to the Neptune Theatre n stay all day. Sometimes we saved alittle n stopped at Foster Freeze. One ice cream for us to share walking home. CHELLO. You loved calling his name. Gina at 3 loved her doggie. I miss you every single minute of everyday. I love you momma. My heart cry's for you. Even at 71 I cry for you. I want this to be a happy birthday for us all. Hug my baby brother n everyone. They are missed to.

Hello Big Sister Geneva:
   Recalling your devoted bigger sister duties to me, and as you grew into adult world, with your children, you continued to be the devoted Mother, and Grandmother at the same time. Am sure the entire McMaster, Garcia kin-folks still miss you dearly, and hoping by now that Gramma Cia, Marlys Ann, Gail, Glenda, including Brother Gilbert, and Cousin Stuart, are embracing each other and all looking down of us Family Members. Any one of us can look upward and see all your shining eyes, continuing to Bless us Family members, on a daily basis. In closing, all will be surprised at the growth of our Family, as that was Gramma Cia's hope!

Today, yes it was during Geneva's 14th Birthday,1944, the cake was huge, I was nearly 10 yrs old, & I started to blow our Geneva's candles, she said, "No,its my turn, Gerald" so I remembered how gentle she was to me, so I moved my chair away from her White Cake w/14 candles, she was so extra happy with me, Geneva sorta liked me, I think, way back then!  PS- Still miss you, my Big Sister!

Every person is born into a particular portion of Heaven. Our Sister, Geneva, was and is like a companion star, around us, giving us point & directions. I ask Geneva, when I have something to think about, and utilize her thoughts on that matter., I truly do, even in my current advance age, I reflect to my "ever-first-mentor", back in like 1948!

Sometimes, I lonely, thinking of our Family leaving us, having only spent a short time, with all of us, I think of Geneva, helping Mom at all hours of the day, seeing Geneva close the front door and walking me to lst & all the way to the 6th Grade in Esparto. of course, I like to take my time to school, and Geneva was responsible to get me to school on time I love her,she protected me !

Geneva, Being my only "Big Sister", I adored her manners to me, she covered my back, many times, she sometimes even took the blame, when I was late, or slow finishing my taking the plates off the table, after eating, no kidding! She bought me my lst "Sundae", w/ her own lunch-money! She was very kind to us all.
