Our Mother is always with us. She’s the whisper of the leaves as we walk down the street. She’s the smell of certain foods we remember, Flowers we pick and the fragrance of life itself. She’s the cool hand on our brow when we’re not feeling well, She’s our breath in the air on a cold winter’s day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls us to sleep, The colors of the rainbow, She is Christmas morning. Our mother lives inside our laughter. She’s the place we came from, our first home. She’s the map we follow with every step we take. She’s our first love, our first friend, even our first enemy. Nothing on Earth can separate us. Not time, not space, not even death. Mom, Thank you for giving us LIFE and the HONOR of having you for our MOTHER! – Love, Butch, Robbie, Gail, Lauri, Steve
