That was our mother, having eight of her own and then caring for the children of family members, friends, and neighbors. Our home was always open to the many "kids" that passed through, whether to have a meal or an extended "sleepover". We had one strict rule at our home-everybody had to be at the dinner table together. Talking, laughing, Dad telling jokes, Mom saying "Hon, you are terrible!". These and many other memories are what we will cherish and hold in our hearts forever. Thank you, Mother, for giving us the life lessons that we needed and the bond to each other that will help us to try and live without you. You will be greatly missed."
