Moms passed away Monday August 15 at the age of 80.


 Mom passed away peacefully on Monday.  Tomorrow we will be having her service and saying our goodbyes.

  I found this recent photo that looks like shes waving goodbye.  She really showing off her new hair do.


Now that I am gone,


remember me with smiles and laughter.

And if you need to cry,

cry with your brother or sister

who walks in grief beside you.

And when you need me,

put your arms around anyone

and give to them what you need to give to me.

There are so many who need so much.

I want to leave you something --

something much better than words or sounds.

Look for me in the people I've known

or helped in some special way.

Let me live in your heart

as well as in your mind.

You can love me most

by letting your love reach out to our loved ones,

by embracing them and living in their love.

Love does not die, people do.

So, when all that's left of me is love,

give me away as best you can.
