Service has been a large part of her life. When I was a young girl she was a Pink Lady at our local hospital and donated many hours of her time. After retiring she returned to volunteering, this time serving as the President a couple of times and also many years on the Board of Directors. I'm not sure but I believe she has about 55 years and a gazillion hours logged in to the Auxiliary.
Mom also has dedicated her life to her family. During a particularly tough time in my life Mom and Dad were there to pick up the pieces, offer support and to help me raise Athena and Eris. I will be forever grateful for that.
The phases of her life have all included children, and even now she is dedicated to her seven grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren. They all love to visit "Grandmama's house".
Thanks Mom, for everything. See ya at the pool in the morning!
I love you!
