Wow Randy...Thanks for sharing. Your mom sounds like she was a wonderful woman and lived a full life and saw many things that many will never see. Great tribute and I'm sure she is extremely proud of you. Thanks for sharing and thanks for remembering so much of the good.

Sorry to hear about your mom Randy, you and your family are in our prayers.

Those still blessed enough to have your mom, call her right now and just tell her you love her! I sometimes regret being such a pain in the ass and missing too many years always thinking there would be time when I wasn't so busy with school or work or whatever.

Sorry to hear but glad it was as peaceful as it could be, from the sound of it she has left this world a little bit better than she found it.

Randy, that was an excellent tribute to your mother. My Mom passed 10 years ago and I still thank her for the values she instilled.

My thanks to Randy's Mom as well for the fine job she did raising her son.

When I lost my mom, it dawned on me that I had lost my biggest and most unflinching supporter I would ever have. Nobody loves you like your mom. The world is just not as nice a place without your mom.

Sorry Randy. Make sure you tell your kids and grandkids about her.
