Honoring Mom

by Kim on June 27, 2012

By the numbers, Joan is wife to Ed for 58 years, mother of 6 of us, mother-in-law to 6 more, Grandmother to 15, Grandmother-in-law to 6 new family members, and Great-Grandmother to 4 little ones. But to all of us, she is the reason that there is so much joy and connection in our family.  She has supported us all through thick and thin, anguish and joy, heartbreak and ecstasy. What a legacy of love! She was there for me when my own mother was dying, bringing comfort to both my mother and me. Thanks Mom for your devotion to family – we are all better people because of you. Have the very best 80th birthday! You show us how to be young at heart.
