For those of you who don't know my mom passed away 12 years ago this coming May with brain cancer. Today is her birthday and I just wanted to share somethings about her with you. Being the youngest I was a mamma's girl. I always wanted to be with her and do everything she was doing. In elementary school I would get so homesick that I just wanted to be home with her. I always loved it when my mom was able to come into my class to help out or go on field trips with my class. Everyone always knew my mom to be so happy and smiley. She was a very optimistic person and always saw the good in people. She was everyone's friend. The little kids at church called her the candy lady because she always had candy in her (huge) purse. My mom had such a strong testimony of the Gospel and taught me how to love and care for others through her example. I'm so grateful for the 12 years in my life that she was able to take care of me and to love me.
This picture is something my Aunt gave me. She put together some pictures of me and my mom.
