  1. We all owe your mom a debt of gratitude. She brought you into the world and instilled the humor and sense of wonder you so graciously share. What an awesome legacy!

      She was an excellent role model for me. Everything was fun, new, and exciting. My friends loved my mom more than they loved their own moms.

  2. I want to hear about the frozen sandwiches!

      For the most part, she was a real sweetheart. Like all of us, she held her dark moments too. Her goal in life is to make people laugh. She was a huge success!

    That was Sis! If she didn’t create a reason to give you a smile, she went along with anything that would do the same.

  6. Have to love a lady with the moxie to wear those shoes! Hugs!

    Just love the picture of your Mom with the shoes, priceless! Today is special. You’ll find a penny and know she sent it to you.
