Moms life was a living example of the Bible verse Ephesians 4:32: "and be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another just as God also forgave you in Christ".
Mom was raised as a coal miners granddaughter and she was so proud of her heritage. Her door was always open, a bed available and coffee a brewing. She was known as a great cook but especially for her egg sandwiches and her deer steak/gravy and mashed potatoes. Our loving Mother will be missed forever and a day! God broke the mold when he made our "Mommy Dearest"!
