Mothers Day, 2009

Like you I had a great Mother. It's been over a decade since my Mom went on ahead to the Spirit World and there are days it seems just like yesterday I hear her voice in our conversations. Moms are special. My sons have a great one.

My Mom didn't have it so great growing up. Her first heart surgery, at age 4, was in the early 1930's at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Her second in 1975 at Abbott Northwestern in Minneapolis. Her third in 1991 where she suffered a massive stroke coming out of surgery. I "lost" my Mom that fateful day in January of 1991 though she lived another 8 years. I wish it wasn't so. Today I wonder what she would look like, how she would have aged, how she and Dad would have spent those "golden" years together, where they would have traveled?
