When I Think of Mom
When I think of Mom - I will remember her love for her family & the only true love of her life, my Dad.
When I see a stuffed animal - I will think of the love for Garfield & all the soft Teddy Bears she had.
When I see a cat - I will think of her immense love for all, especially Calico, Thumper, Curly Ears, and Punk.
When I see a simple tie-twist - I will think of all the things she valued that some would call "junk".
When I hear music - I will think of her beautiful soprano voice & how we loved to hear her family sing.
When I see a red cardinal - I will remember how she appreciated its beauty and all that nature brings.
When I taste Chocolate - I will remember her chocolate fudge frosting & how we loved to lick the bowl!
When I see Dad - I will think of Mom's undying love & devotion for the 62 years - he made her life whole.
When I see horses - I will think of her pony "Boots" & how she rode her without fear.
When I think of Mom & Dad together - their lives were so entwined - he was her eyes & she his ears.
Mom never forgot a birth date & was a devoted great-grandmother, grandmother, mother, and wife.
When I think of God - I will think how blessed I was to have her in my life.
