Mom 2 was so loving and so sweet. She kept in contact with me over the years, Even before internet was a common household item. She would tell me how everyone was doing at Christmas and some other times. Thank goodness for Facebook, we could kept even better in touch. I loved her as my own mom. She will be missed. Sue and family sorry for your loss.Tami (Crossin) Haddox - January 18 at 12:17 PM
A while back I read a post written by Elizabeth Gilbert, there was paragraph that I felt could have been written for momma: “… The really old ladies always are bad-asses. I'm talking about the real survivors. The women who have been through everything already, so nothing scares them anymore. The ones who have already watched the world fight itself nearly to death a dozen times over. The ones who have buried their dreams and their loved ones and lived through it. The ones who have suffered pain and lived through it, and who have had their innocence challenged by ten thousand appalling assaults…and who lived through all of it…” Rest in peace you beautiful bad-ass! I love you!Susi Hamilton - January 18 at 11:38 AM
I loved my Aunt Janet. She could always make me laugh! She was the crazy good kind. She loved her family and friends and they loved her. Rest in peace Aunt Janet.Patrick Crossen - January 18 at 9:48 AM
