Today is mother’s day and it always brings back a lot of dear and precious memories. I can always picture my mamma laughing and happy. She was a wonderful woman. She was kind sympathetic, generous and loved people – always trying to help some one and whatever she did, it was in the spirit of Christ, that spirit is one of justice, faith and hope.
Then after we had breakfast, your dad and I, I prepared for the noon meal as Elbert Jr and his family were coming to eat. The telephone rang – it was long distance and who, but our baby girl, Nancy, and it was so good to hear your sweet voice, first year you had been away on Mother’s Day. Norris sounded good and we just wished you two could have been home. Margaret and Tom too, came and had dinner with us at 1 o’clock. The others came by later on. Frances and her family and you two

were the only ones missing…
Next a long distance call from our girl, Frances – the first of our six children. She is and always was so very happy, and real blonde baby, with almost no hair and laughing with glee. She was a big part of my life and hears. I was 21 when she arrived – July 26, 1914 – Then and on through the years, she grew along side me and helped us so much. We shared much together and so on this day we wished for all of you together in love, peace, forgiving and kind. I love gentle kind and forgiving hearts, filled with mercy and justice toward all things, for God made them all and us too.
