Our Mother was an amazing woman. She loved her children so much that she sacrificed her own needs to provide for her children. Mother worked hard on the farm feeding the animals and canning vegetables from the garden to get the family through the winter. She loved flowers and each year, with her green thumb, grew the most beautiful flowers in the world.
