You are every mother's hope in a son- I'm sure she was proud of you Knowing you learned what she was teaching by example. I Member you had another thoughtful post when your father died as well-we should all be so fortunate to have some one eulogize us as you have them. May they both rest in Peace as their work here is done.


Gary,I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was quite a lady. I can't imagine how hard it must be to lose both your parents so close in time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.


She sounds amazing, and your words honor her.


Thank you for sharing what a beautiful lady your mom was. You are so very lucky to have had such a wonderful mother, and likewise, she was lucky to be blessed with you. I'm sorry for you loss.

I am so sorry. Your mother sounds truly lovely.The fact that you were able to appreciate all those wonderful lessons she taught you,shows what kind of person you are.
It seems unfair to lose your mom and dad so close together. Your tribute to each of them was very loving. That's why you are such a wonderful father and husband.

I stumbled across your blog while I was doing some online research. Your mother sounds like she was a true lady. The world could use more of these gracious, kind women of yesteryear.
