These are Momís stories as told by her.  When we started this, it took a bit of encouraging to get her going, but once she got started, the stories kept coming, as stories triggered memories and memories triggered stories.

 

We began to realize that we had to stop at some point or this book would never have made it to print! There are hundreds of other stories and hundreds of memories.  This remarkable woman has touched many of us in profound and unforgettable ways.

 

The work we put into creating this document was indeed a labor of love.  As you read this, we hope you share the laughs, the tears, the joy and the wonder that we experienced as we put it together.

 

 Her story had to be told.
