The hardest part was to watch her slowly slip away as the 'thief' cheated her ... eventually not knowing any of us, nary even a sound. Even harder was watching Pa suffer for her all those years, tending to her every need.
Ma was best known for her strong christian heart & her beautiful vegetable gardens that she & Pa tended.
Her greatest joy in life was her love for her grandchildren, & babies ... anyone's baby ... and, her undying love for Pa. She loved putting her arms around him, with a huge hug, 'I love my husband'. I/we can still hear her okie twang echoing forever ... 'Oh, good night!!'
How blessed you are to be in Heaven ... we all miss you, you left us with beautiful memories. RIP
