December 1962 – December 2015
“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” – Abraham Lincoln
My mother was an amazing woman. There are not many people that would put everyone else, no matter who they were, before themselves, and she always did. She wore her heart on her sleeve and so much love for her family and close friends that it radiated through her smile. Her greatest accomplishment if I were able to ask her I am sure would be her granddaughter Jayna. She loved her more than words could ever express. She and my father shared a love that could last for the ages.
We did not just lose a wife and mother we lost our best friend. She was always selfless. She worked with homeless seniors and when she was diagnosed with Cancer and it got to the point where she couldn’t go to work that was the only thing she wanted to do. It was making her so upset that she couldn’t be there to help those that needed help, those that anyone else would overlook. She was beautiful inside and out and I hope that my daughter and I can be even a quarter of the woman she was.
