Happy Birthday Mom

Today would be my mom,
Geneva Mary Berryhill's
67th Birthday
As I have been thinking about my mom today, I also thought a lot about my siblings and the traits that each of them have received from my mom.
This is one of the few pictures I have of my mom and me when I was young.
She was just 19 years old when I was born.
Bruce has my mom's genes Morris is creative and will do anything for anybody.
Rowland is an fantastic cook and dedicated to his family
Darlene is beautiful like my mom
and
the most amazing mom to her 5 children
So even though my mom is no longer here,
her qualities are still alive and strong in our family.

I sure miss her. Plus I am a great cook too, but maybe I get that from my older sister.
Love you!

What a sweet thing Janiece. I can't imagine how it feels, but I do feel the love you held for her.

Happy Birthday.

A girl can never grow old enough to not need her Mommy. I'm so sorry you lost yours when she was still so young. Glad to see you remembering all the great stuff she gave you through biology and teachings.

What a wonderful tribute. If you're related to her she must have had the most wonderful qualities.
