What do you say about the "PERFECT" mother who brought up a son who was "GOOD, BAD & UGLY"!! You were always a loving, caring, compassionate & understanding "LADY". The "GOOD"!! You offered me a life any kid would envy. Growing up at the cottage every summer, having the love of the outdoors, endless swimming, skiing, sun, nighttime fires, etc. The "BAD"!! You were strong when I broke my front teeth at 10, in an accident at 18 when I broke my leg, when I had a heart attack at 40 at the cottage and many more incidents that happened throughout my life. The "UGLY"!! In 1998, having to sell the house due to unfortunate reasons. That hurt me immensely considering dad & you built the house from the ground up. But this is "NOT" about me. This is about your kindness, generosity, involvement with charities that shone as the "PERFECT" mother and you still made time to take care of your family. Mom, you did it all. What better mother could you ask for ?? Your in heaven with dad now & can FINALLY spend all your time with him. I know you have been lonely down here, but "NO MORE"!! Your with the one you married "FOREVER"!! I wish you all the best in your new life being with dad again. I will "MISS YOU DEEPLY", mom. Take care. "I LOVE YOU"!!! Your son, Brian.
