Happy Mother's Day, Mom!!
My mom died in 1984 of Alsheimers...or at least that is what the Doctor's said. I was never sure. I thought she might have had a series of mini strokes. She was ill for 8 years.
My Mom's whole life was her home and her family. She never worked outside of the home. She was a great Mom with great warmth and understanding. She had an engaging laugh and one trait I inherited from her is that we both snort when we get so tickled laughing that we can't get our breath. :)
My mother was beautiful too. She was beautiful inside and out.
She was married for 53 years when she died at age 78. She was five years older than my Dad and my Dad lived until he was 94.
My Mom's grandchildren were everything to her, but especially my daughter, Erin, as she was the only grandchild who lived close by. I know how she felt now that I have my little granddaughter, Sienna.
I love and miss you, Mom!
