God blessed me with a loving, beautiful Mother. Honest, patient, kind. Trustworthy & faithfully committed to her family. Mom, you're strong & lovingly stubborn, when you need to be, & amazingly agreeable as well. All admirable life lessons you've taught us, that we will carry with us forever. Mom, you are so proud of your family, & sharing time together, with your grandchildren, & your pride n joy, Amaryllis. You're unconditional love, is steadfast & unwavering, even as we tested your patience. You remain slow to anger & quick to forgive. Your love of creating in the kitchen, love of nature, by your passion for flowers, trees, humming birds & all of God's creatures. Are gifts, you passed on to me. Mom enjoyed travel & trying something new. Hiking Red Rocks, fair rides, & roller coasters, snowmobiling, too many to mention. Some of which you stated "never again." Dancing on the bar at my 50th birthday party, or anywhere good music was playing. Attending Bob Segar concert, where you danced to your signature song, " Old Time Rock n Roll." Just a few of the precious memories, I carry in my heart. All my years of life, have been blessed with your love, & all who knew you. Mom you are my best friend, my teacher, & my hero. I've not know life without you, until now. Your love never fails, not in life, nor in death. This is my temporary home, this is not where I belong. I love you, Momma, always, forever, eternally. Happy Mother's Day, your first one in heaven. I'll see you soon.

When I first started caring for Ms. Betty it was her and her husband Mr. Roger. It started a whole new wonderful chapter in my life. I was honored to become a part of their family and to get to know some wonderful people. We had so much fun. Ms. Betty is my best friend. We had hours and hours of great conversation ( chin wagging as Ms. Betty said). There will never be another Ms. Betty! She taught me so much and loved me unconditionally as I did her. You will forever be in my heart! It's not good bye we just turned the page. I love you Ms. Betty
