Photo Monday is on hold today. This is the 3rd anniversary of Mom's passing. Her birthday is St. Patrick's day. She died just a couple weeks before she turned 80. She wanted to be 80 so bad but it just wasn't meant to be. So here are a few pics of Mom.
This was taken in 1946. She was 20.
This one was taken in August before she died. My daughter Rhonda and I had went up to Illinois for 6 weeks to take care of her when she came out of hospital. She was being her silly self.
And this last photo used to be my header. On the left is her and Dad's wedding day and on the right Mom about 23.

Mama by Il Divo
Mama thank you for who I am
Thank you for all the things I'm not
Forgive me for the words unsaid
For the times I forgot
Mama remember all my life
You showed me love,you sacrificed
Think of those young and early days
How I've changed
Along the way (along the way)
And I know you believed
And I know you had dreams
And I'm sorry it took all this time to see
That I am where I am because of your truth
And I miss you , I miss you
Mama forgive the times you cried
Forgive me for not making right
All of the storms I may have caused
And I've been wrong
Dry your eyes (dry your eyes)
Mama I hope this makes you smile
I hope you're happy with my life
At peace with every choice I made
How I've changed Along the way
And I know you believed in all of my dreams
And I owe it all to you ,mama
