I truly miss my mom and think of her every day. I lost this dear lady twice and of course the last time was when she passed in 1993. The first time was caused by a stroke which effected her speech, and walking. But at least I could hug her, kiss her, and tell her how much I loved her. She lived this way for sixteen years, which came shortly after my dad had passed in 1977. I remember that she would get so aggravated when she could not tell us what she wanted to say. I remember that my kids when they were small tried to get her to say hippopotamus, finally one day she got so mad that she said it and you could tell that it made her so happy. After that she would say oh shoot when she tried to tell us something and couldn’t. We love and miss you Mom.
