  2. I’d like to tell others about Mother.
    Until Mother’s later years you didn’t find her resting. She was always doing something ~ working harder than anyone else. Even at 94 Mother wanted to fold clothes for me while staying at our house and offered to help do whatever she could.
    As we were growing up Mother would fix green fried tomatoes making sure we had plenty and to have them while they were hot. She on the other hand was the last one to get a sandwich and to sit down. This was just how Mother was ~ she catered to us and put us first.
    She found the best in everyone and wanted to do what was right. Mother loved her family, even if at 94 she couldn’t remember all of the names. She was always happy for their endeavors and achievements, hoping the best for them. She loved being with her family and the conversations each person gave her. She loved the phone calls she got and would thank you for calling “her”.
    What a terrific and loving Mother I [we] had! Sonna
