In honor of my mother:

I will gain as much knowledge as I possibly. There are so many wonderful things to learn that can enrich our lives, make us healthier, and bring us closer together. Mom was a wealth of knowledge. She was always learning and loved to share what she knew with others.


  1. I loved your mom so much. She was one of the kindest, dearest people I know. I remember very clearly the week that we moved into our house that your mom brought over a yummy pan of lasagna so I wouldn't have to cook while I unpacked boxes. Through all the years, even after I went back to work, she was always there when I needed her. It has been six years that have been bitter-sweet. Every anniversary that I am cancer free I think about Cosette and wish that I could share that with her. I am looking forward to the day when we can see each other again. I know that she is very proud of you and would be thrilled about your new baby boy soon to be here. I know that she knows him now and is excited for him to come to your family. So from my family to yours - Happy Birthday, Cosette. We love and miss you.


  2. On this 56th Celebration of your Mother I would like to share with you how much she means to me.
    She was the greatest friend I have ever had or have hope to have in my life time!
    She laughed with me and cried with me, she taught me how to cook, bake, and gave me great recipes, she increase my knowledge of sewing, and how to work in a Church Pres.and strenghten my testimony.
    She brainstormed with me on every calling or assignment I ever had.
    She taught me how to parent and showed me by example how to do it unconditionally,
    She was the first person to introduce herself to me when we first moved here and the first person in the ward I dared called.
    She taught me how to put on a wedding and to sew a bow tie and make coursages and boutineers.
    We sewed together and shopped at fabric stores together.
    Once when Kris Harris had come to visit I stopped in and she reminised about how when she would be pregnant and would tell the Bishop she couldn't do a calling she realized that they would ask your Mom who was also Pregnant and she would always say yes.
    Your Mom taught me many things but most importantly she taught me how to show that she loved our Heavenly Father and lived by the Testimony He had blessed her with and to Truly take the name of Christ upon her and to walk in the paths He walked.
    I miss her so much and look forward to the day I will see her again because I know she will be there waiting to see me with that wonderful glorious smile of hers.
    I know she is so proud of you and the things you are doing to honor her in the way you are living your life and are continuing to progress in everything you do. I honor you for how you honor your Mother and say "Happy Birthday Cosette"

  3. I'm glad to see you doing such an amazing tribute to your mother. I am also glad for your previous post about welcoming others. You do such a great job with organizing the girls' nights. I am sorry that I haven't come very often. It is wonderful to know that I am welcome, though. Keep up the good work!
    PS- I'm planning on coming on Friday. Trying to find a sitter!
