Dear Mom, I remember those times when granddad brought live trout to the house from the Monongahela River. I remember cream of wheat on those cold PA mornings, cod liver oil to keep us well, and hot chocolate cake for watery young mouths. You were the best mother. I know that the best part of me was passed on by you and I thank you for that. These are the memories I will always carry in my heart. You are loved and missed. Always, Brenda
