I remember her smile. I never saw her tears. She was the strongest person I knew. When things went wrong she was the calm in the storm. Everyone called her mom, whether they were family or friend. I miss her more than I thought I ever could.
Life was hard, she took it in stride. I learned to be strong by watching her being with her, and now while missing her.
Wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, friend. Always with a smile, always willing to help.
Always and forever MOM!
