~Because Mom loved her flowers....
Mom and Dad's passion was their flower gardens.  Dad had a knack for growing  Gladiolas.
One year he grew a long row of gladiolas down their driveway,

it was so breath-taking that a local neighbor acquisitioned  them for her wedding.

Please take a moment to check out a book that was sent to me by a new friend. It truly is a Small World, when women can find each other through a common cause. I am so blessed to be a part of this world! :)


Product Description

Momma and Me is a true story of a mother and a daughter who simultaneously suffer cancer - one ovarian, one breast. The memoir highlights the experiences of mother and daughter during a six year period, 1991-1997. Virtually all women and those who love them have been, are being, or will be touched by similar, real-life experiences. It is the author's hope this story will reach out to those people and help to guide them through the maze.

About the Author

Alzheimer's Awareness Bracelet
Alzheimer's Awareness bracelet made for me by one of our dearest people!

We would like to thank all of you for your kind words and prayers as we celebrate my mother's Journey Home. Mom left us to join Dad on the Red Road Home
on April 13, 2003 after a long time lost in that Dark Place we know as Alzheimer's.
I'm sure Dad is running for the hills now!

My mom is a Breast Cancer Survivor, and her journey was a silent one, until she was ready to tell me her story. When Mom finally told me, "I didn't want to trouble you...", that opened up a whole new world for me.

Mom, I am sorry you felt you had to go on this journey alone, but I know you know now, you were never alone.

Mom, you are loved, more than I was ever able to tell you. and missed very much.

Happy Birthday
Happy Journey Mom! 

April 15, 1920-April 13, 2003

Thank you Debbie P, for the greeting card with Mom's picture on it!
