"To all that know me or my family. I was raised by a very caring loving Mother the best mom I could ever imagine or could have asked for. She struggled raising us 4 kids by herself and never really complained. She was 92in August  and closer to life's journeys end. She's taught me so much of who I am through life. She taught me how be responsible in life, how to cook, sew, home repairs, household chores, keep a clean home,raise good children, manage money, how to treat women and  others regardless of sex, religion , ethnicity, or economic status with kidness to forgive those who wrong you, not to judge others, to love everyone, unconditionally love , to all get along as we tread life's journeys. For sometimes you / we never know the struggles, unknown struggles, heartaches of others of what ..someone is else is' dealing with.   She's resting now peacefully in her own home in the  Loving care of family, thanks to all  especially Linda, Nancy, Rob, others and last not least Hospice care. She had a spell this year with alzheimer's, severe dementia and weight loss but resting peacefully going thru the day by day one day at a time weak and tired. May God comfort n bless you Mom you'll always be in me & my heart and life forever Mom..Rich.."
