To A Wonderful Mother

If it hadn’t been for you mom, we would never

have known how truly strong and courageous a woman can be,

how assuring a home can be and how

beautiful and lasting a Mother’s love can be.

Your journey was not easy, but your faith never faltered and your heart never surrendered.

You will be in our thoughts and hearts forever.

Diane, Lynne, Stanley, Geraldine, Sherylee & families
