A Special Angel In My Life
(My mother-in-law, who gave birth to my life partner, my best friend
and the greatest husband in the world)
As of March, 2001, Mom Dee is 84 years old and is still very independent, although she lives with one of her daughters. She still drives her own car to do some shopping, visits family and friends, and attends church every Sunday. During the summer of 2000, she visited relatives in Texas and traveled by bus and plane.
She visited over five cities and several relatives and old friends. She was accompanied by her sister-in-law, who is also a senior citizen.
She is a very strong lady for her age so she was able to handle the month-long
traveling with ease.
Mom Dee should be honored as the mother of
twelve children - most of whom married and had children of their own - so she is
surrounded by many family members in Colorado. She raised her family while
having to travel alot, as her husband ministered in many cities throughout the
midwest. I am sure there were many difficulties and challenges that she
endured to raise her family in this environment.
In her 84 years, she has seen some of our
first vehicles, phones, and coal-burning stoves to the current
electrical appliances, cellular phones, television, space travel to the
moon, and her picture being shared with countless people on the world wide web.
There are other accomplishments that make
her special; however, I am honoring her as a mother (one of the most difficult
jobs in the world with the potential of being one of the most
rewarding). Mom Dee has no motherhood trophies on her mantle but she has
love from many people in her life and the
fruit of her lifetime - her sons and daughters, grandchildren, and
great-grandchildren - who are honorable citizens in many communities of the
United States of America.
