One of my earliest memories of my Mom was her reading stories to us and singing. I am her firstborn out of 4 children (from her first marriage), I only had her as my Mom until I was 14 yrs. old when our father moved us away from Wisc. to Texas, but as an adult I had lived in Alma as a very young adult a couple of different times and in my mid-twenties lived in St. Paul/Lake Elmo so I was able to visit fairly often. I am so glad that I had those times with her, unfortunately, my siblings each only came for one visit as adults, but at least she did get those one time to see her other children. I live in Virginia and have been busy raising children and grandchildren, life has not always been easy, and unfortunately had not been able to come back to Wisc. for any visits since 1990. But my Mom and I called each other on a fairly regular basis. I do wish I was able to come up to pay my respects, but unfortunately, we are dealing with a lot right now. Right now our house has been and almost done being under construction due to a tree that fell on our house and took out half of the house. We also are raising our 14 yr. old grandson who is autistic Matthew is at a level of a 5/6-year-old. I am so glad that my sister Carisa will be there to represent me. I am so glad that she was with Mom when she passed and got to see that one last smile.
