I was going through some old family pictures and thought I'd post some of my favorites of her. When I try to picture my mom two things about her come to my mind and stand out,
There was never a question of her love for my Dad.
I think this is in Colorado. I remember this day and what a good sport she was as she nervously sat down in the tube. In this picture you can see the anxious look on Mike's face, I however, had no trouble giving her a big push down that steep hill. I can still hear her screaming then laughing then screaming then laughing as she went flying down that hill. It was such a fun day for me and my two oldest sons, Mike and Scott.
This picture is priceless and needs no explanation.
My Mom with Rebecca and Nikki, my two daughters. Thanksgiving, approximately 1995
Left to right, me, my mom and my sister Carol. The same Thanksgiving around 1995. How do you like our look-alike sweatshirts. I made them for us that year, I may still have mine folded up in a closet somewhere.
She was a beautiful baby!
