Peggy/CIndy, So sorry to hear about the passing of your dear mother. As we read her obituary, she sounds like an amazing mother and mentor. We wish that we could have gotten to know her as I am sure she had some amazing stories of growing up and the changes that she helped bring to pass. May your lives continue to reflect those positive traits that endured her to your memory.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
