How is it possible that SIXTEEN years have passed? You are still part of the fabric of my life. I learned SO much from you. It will be 45 years this summer that you welcomed me as a daughter. When I bake, I use the measuring cup that went missing from your kitchen for over a year, only to be found in the jar of dried beans in the pantry. I have some of your handwritten recipes...and a few of your cooking pots, but that hasn't helped me deliver the Momma-delicious meals you produced on your old gas stove. I think your secret ingredient was LOVE. Of course during this season I always think of you when the YELLOW roses blossom. I didn't get to bring the blue rose bush with me from Mesa, but I think Nichole still has it in the front yard on Jasmine. And "Good Friday" (regardless of the calendar date) is always special as the day we said our last good-byes. Love you always Momma.

Momma was a great Mother-in law, she made me welcome to the family from the day Jim and I married and really before that. My friends could not believe how lucky I was to have a great Mother-in law, they did not have the experience that I had with their Mother-in Laws, she was the best, she is missed everyday. Becky

Good morning, Momma~ It seems IMPOSSIBLE that you've already been gone from Midland for 12 YEARS. Gone...but still very much with us in thought and memories. I still have yellow roses (and a blue one) in my yard to remind me of your affection. And that old windchime that used to hang outside your kitchen window has been in my yard for quite some time now. It doesn't make the "music" of some of my other chimes...but what could you expect from tubes of pipe with a tail cut from a windmill blade..?? It's still one of my treasures. I mentioned to someone just the other day that if I WERE to be a mother-in-law (which isn't going to happen), I'd want to be just like you. You were THE BEST ..and then, I think the mold was broken.
