I love you SO much, Mom! Thank you for all the wonderful memories you left me with…

I still remember you packing my lunch when I went to school, and you wrote little notes & put them into my lunch box every day! I always loved that, and looked forward to reading them.

Even when I went to summer camp, you took the time to write me a letter every day, including sending some before I even left, so even on the very first “mail call” day, my name would always be called for a letter from home!!

Thank you for your support with my swimming lessons, and always being there to cheer for me during all the years of competitions. Even as I was swimming, I could always hear you & Dad in the stands cheering for me, and that gave me the extra boost I needed to push myself even faster!

I also remember when I moved out of the house, and got my first apartment, you found a beautiful wall clock at a Rummage Sale, and bought it for me. Then, even though my apartment was in Fredonia, at least 35 miles away from Hales Corners, you drove up with a friend of yours to surprise me, and give me the new house warming gift. I actually still have that clock, Mom, and I wouldn’t give it up for anything!!

While I was typing that story, I remember you told me once that you & a friend were walking around downtown Wisconsin Dells, and after you left a store, you told her you wanted to go back & buy a musical chime instrument for me. I still have that too!!

I loved bringing my nieces & nephews (your beautiful grandchildren) up to your trailer when they were younger, and taking them to the Dells. We loved coming home to you…you always were there to cook us wonderful meals, ask about the fun we had that day, made sure we were taken care of.

I’m so thankful that you & I got to attend Wo-Zha-Wa Days in Wisconsin Dells several times…it was great to observe the Native American history at that festival with you, try the new foods, or buy some of the goods.

Thank you for you & Dad helping me (& Jesse) move out to Utah in 2004. That was really a huge help, and I’m so grateful that you got to see my very first house (and extremely grateful for you & Dad helping me get it set up). Then to go see Zion & Bryce National Parks with the 2 of you was priceless!

It also meant SO much to me that you came out to my Wild West Arts Club convention in Oklahoma in 2005, and got to watch me compete in a roping event, cheering me on once again!

I’m thrilled that a few years ago, you & Dad got to travel the country, seeing the different beautiful sites this country has to offer, and stopped in to see me again, getting to see my 2nd purchased (& still current) house, and got to meet my dogs!

Finally Mom, thank you most for making sure that all of your children came to know God, and that you guided all of us to accept Jesus Christ as our Savior. Because of that, I know by faith that you are with Him in the Kingdom of Heaven right now. You are hugging your own parents again, and seeing your oldest son, Terry, again! Someday, at the time of the Lord’s choosing, we will all join you there, and be together for eternity!! How awesome will that be?!?
