Mum was a beautiful and dignified lady. She was truthful, artistic, self disciplined and cherished her marriage and family.
Sewing, painting, curling, singing, knitting, crocheting, reading, baking and making meals were some of her greatest joys. She dedicated the last part of her life totally to the well being of dad. Always making sure there was a delicious hot meal on the table, clean, ironed clothes in the closet and an immaculately clean house. Every house mum and dad had was made a home by mum’s decorative and loving touch.
Sometimes, a mom means laughter, sharing and warmth. Sometimes, a mom means understanding, encouragement and guidance. But always a mom means love.
