This is my mother, Ethel with her sister. Mom, if I could have chosen any mother in the world, I would still have chosen you. You are my
mom and my best friend. I love you! Happy Mother's Day!
This is my mother in law, Dolores. Mom, you are so much like my own mother that I can't help but love you! Happy Mother's Day!
This is my dear beloved paternal grandmother, Grace. Mom-mom, since you left us, we feel such an emptiness! We miss you so very much.
When we ride past your house we still feel your presence there!
Thank you for all you have taught us.
This is my maternal grandmother Ethel. Her and my grandfather lived in
Florida during most of my lifetime. I wish I could have known her better. She
loved us dearly, as we did her.
May you both rest in peace and Happy Mother's Day!
Grandmothers Are Mothers Who Are Grand
Grandmothers are mothers who are grand,
Restoring the sense that our most precious things
Are those that do not change much over time.
No love of childhood is more sublime,
Demanding little, giving much on demand,
More inclined than most to grant the wings
On which we fly off to enchanted lands.
Though grandmothers must sometimes serve as mothers,
Helping out, or maybe taking over,
Each has all the patience wisdom brings,
Remembering our passions more than others,
Singing childish songs we long remember.
