Happy Birthday to my Mommy!
She's been gone 18 years now, I can't believe it.
I was mad because she left me with 3 young girls to raise.
Well, I did it Ummie!!
You would be so proud of all of them.
And I really think you would love what I'm doing now..

Here she is holding me in 1953shhhh.

Me, my Mom and my sister.

Little Gram, Mom, me and Big Gram.
Big Gram finally asks us to stop calling her Big Gram. I just couldn't understand why?!
They are all gone now, I thought they would live forever.
Miss you everyday..
Happy Birthday!
Love you

Those pictures are precious Sue. What a beautiful woman your mommy was - obviously you and the girls have all inherited that beauty! Ann

Don't we always think that 'our' loved ones will live forever. My dad had Parkinson's for 18 years and I always thought he would live to see Christ return. OH,nah, He has been gone for 22 years. see, silly thinking huh? But, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR MOMMIE!

This is a lovely tribute to your mother. We do think our parents and grandparents will be with us forever, and maybe they are.

Just seeing this Sue. My Mom died on December 1, 2003, so not so long ago. I was thinking of her earlier today and wishing she were here to talk to. I'm sure your Mom would be very proud of how your girls turned out. :-)
