To my dearest Mother, best friend and other half...Thank You! Today, was your funeral, family and friends gathered to pay respects and I know that you would be pleased! I want you to know that you inspired me! Not many people can say that their mother was your best and other half but I am proud of that! You were always there to lend an ear even at times when it meant me repeating myself until i could process things, offered warm hugs, a beautiful smile and a twinkle in your eyes when I told you daily that I love you. And, your reply was always... I Love You More! I am going to miss you terribly but I wont stop talking to you ever! You promised that you would be that bird singing and flying around me, watching over and guiding me. I've felt your spirit today and will always keep you close to my heart...Forever and always... I will Love You!!

Mom loved to get up very early on Christmas morning a sneak a peek at the presents, until one year she was caught by her grandson, Greg. She said she's just looking.

My favorite memory of Anita....her joyous celebration of Mary and Eric's wedding, especially while "dancing" in her wheelchair surrounded by dancing members of the family! Love, Ellen
