This will be Our Second "Mother's Day" without Mom. Mom passed away March 26, 2001. We Still Miss Her.  Dad wrote this Poem About "Sacrifice" and I think Dad wrote it about Mom!! Both Mom and Dad Sacrificed for All of Us. This Picture was taken Dec. 25th. 2000.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!
We Love and Miss You!
But sacrifice is made by some,
Without a thought of self.
They do not hesitate to  help,
Without a thought of wealth.

Reward to them is in the doing,
Not in what they may receive.
So they pitch in where they're needed,
Till their deed's achieved.

E.H. Coe 1971

I remember when this song came out in 1981, I bought a 45 record for Mom and Dad because I liked the song and it reminded me so much of Mom and Dad!!
"Through The Years"

I can't remember when you weren't there
When I didn't care for anyone but you
I swear We've been through ev'rything there is
Can't imagine anything we've missed
Can't imagine anything the two of us can't do

Through the years
You've never let me down
You turned my life around
The sweetest days I've found
I've found with you
Through the years
I've never been afraid
I've loved the life we've made
And I'm so glad I've stayed
Right here with you
Through the years

I can't remember what I used to do
Who I trusted, who I listened to before
I swear you've taught me everything I know
Can't imagine needing someone so
But through the years it seems to me
I need you more and more

Through the years
Through all the good and bad
I knew how much we had
I've always been so glad
To be with you
Through the years
It's better everyday
You've kissed my tears away
As long as it's okay
I'll stay with you
Through the years

Through the years
When everything went wrong
Together we were strong
I know that I belonged
Right here with you
Through the years
I never had a doubt
We'd always work things out
I've learned what love's about
By loving you
Through the years

"The First One"

Who was the first one,  'told me of God's Love?
Who was the first one,  'read to me from God's Word?
Who was the first one,  'said...IN GOD ALWAYS TRUST!
The first one was 'My Mother'!  I'm glad  she loved me 'that' much!

Her life was a sermon. Her life was a prayer.
And, the first time I ever saw JESUS!  'twas in my Mother's Life
Shining Fair!

Happy Mother's Day to ALL Mothers!!

Sacrifice to some you know,
Is simply just a word.
For other folk's to do it,
Seems awfully absurd.
