Momma

Dear Friends, for those of you who have followed my blogs over the years you've come to know my Momma through things I've written, Pages I've done, cards I've made.  Momma passed away on Tuesday, very peacefully and with many friends and family near her.  I will be with my family until February so my posts will be very far and few between for the next month.  Thank you all for all the love and kind words you've offered about this remarkable lady.   And for you new to my blog, Momma would have been 100 on July 10th.  The night before she went to Hospice she still sat at her computer and played Scrabble for 45 minutes.  She never complained, never said a harsh word about anyone and always had time for you.  A truly genuine lovely lady!

Update 1/30/2011 - The Daily News, the local paper in my hometown, ran a wonderful aritcle about my Momma in today's paper it's here if you care to look.
