What a beautiful tribute to your mother! I have never commented before but this just touched my heart. Her love of life is evident in that amazing smile. I especially love the wedding picture....over the top, with that gorgeous dress, calla lilies, and the top hat! In those photos she exudes confidence and spirit! How fortunate to have had her for a mother, what a great gift. I would have like to have known her :)


thanks so much everyone for your kind words about my mother


We never forget the ones who make our life so full and fun. You were lucky to have such an influence in your life. And, it seems she must know, that you think of her everyday.

Richie, its, its cousin Steve Missry. Ur mother surely was something special. My ex Mary really loved her like I never saw. But i have I'll send u the pictureunny story to tell u.
We all know how she managed to be in all the marching pictures of all our weddings with her head popping in. But if u didn't know already this wasn't a new thing for her
A couple of months ago the nieces got together and a picture was passed around with daddy, uncle Abe grandpa, uncle bobby and a couple of others when they were going into the army.
There in the window with her head sticking out is, what do u know your mother. I thought that was priceless.
