We are so fortunate to have the most special mom.
She is my constant inspiration and a shining example to our entire family. She lives her life with kindness and a special peace with grace. How she survived raising eight children with our father out to sea the majority of his naval career we’ll never know. Her inner beauty is something to behold. She has amazed us all the way she has continued on the past ten years since our dad passed away. The way she has remained such a positive person in spite of being alone without him after 52 years of marriage is the best example she has shown to her children, grandchildren and great great grandchilen. We are all very proud of you mom!
We hope you have a very very happy 82nd birthday! Love all of your kids and families
