Three Years

My mom passed away on July 27th, 2008. This past week marked 3 years. Wow!! Sometimes I feel like the time has crawled by while other times it seems to have gone fast. Either way, I miss her daily but I too am grateful for her daily for all she taught me in the 30 years I was lucky enough to learn from her. She was an amazing woman!!






We sent balloons to heaven. Aly kissed her with lipstick, Tobe wrote his own this year, Jane's is always sweet and heartfelt, and Brett's expresses his appreciation for me. I love reading all of them and I know my mom did too:)

Look how TAN you are!!! I love Aly's face of make up. Glad you got to send your letters. I am sure Mom loved them. (It is such a weird day...) Mom was truly the BEST!!! I miss her so much.

Loved all of the updates! I was wondering what you have been up to lately. Now I know. You and the family (Brett and kids) all look great. You are especially beautiful (and tan - like Dawn said). Have a great day!

Such a neat tradition. :)

And I am looking forward to catching up on all of your blog updates! I haven't had internet since we moved - only thru Pat's phone. I've missed reading your posts!
