Mothers are Best
Daughters Attest
Because She Lived.Could it be that my mother (Mama) is the inspiration that continues to propel me to be the woman I am – a beautiful, wise, kind, unique and compassionate person?

Could it be that Mama’s kind and humble persona, although completing only the sixth grade, was strong in character and fortitude?
She lived a very humble life putting others first at all times.  She lived in a shack in her homeland but no one who crossed her path was homeless…she always made room for them. She would not eat until we all were 537040_10151349335747856_924536225_n-1fed.  Mama lived for 95 years and when she was alive those who crossed her path experienced her love and care.Mama died on Sunday, January 20th 2013 at 6:20 pm.

Today and everyday I cherish her memory and remember the touch of my mama’s hand.

                                         Because she lived
Because she loved
Because she dared
Because she died
I have learned to live and love.I will share the celebration of her memory.  I will sing our favorite song– “You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, You make me happy when skies are gray, You’ll never know dear, how much I love you, Please don’t take my sunshine away.”

What is your favorite memory?  Your favorite song?  Let’s celebrate our LOVED ONES!

Family Matters

Hold them closely.  They are gifts from God.  Enjoy and cherish them.

Love, Love, Love — SHOW IT!  My Mama is gone.  Her legacy lives on.  Her love for God, family and all who crossed her path still resonates with us. Her selflessness and inner courage lives within us.

December 25, 1917 – January 20′ 2013

We continue to celebrate life because you passed this way.  We thank our God for your life.
