We used to play Rummy and Bunco a lot.
We used to watch The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, My 3 Sons, Polka Varieties and movies together every night.
She took me to Indians games often and the wrestling matches at the Cleveland Arena.
I remember there always seemed to be big snow storms on her birthday (Jan. 25).
We went to Red Barn for chicken every Sunday.
We planted flowers together and she taught me how to clean the house.
We always went to church together.
She made delicious stuffed dumplings with peaches; they were SO good!
She always planned big birthday parties for me growing up and would make me big cakes.
She always gave me Easter baskets with a big chocolate bunny rabbit in them.
She would take me to the beach sometimes when I was little. I remember my big blow up shark!
My mom and dad were called Mr. and Mrs. Popcorn because they worked the popcorn stand at my high school basketball games.
My mom and I got along great. I have lots of good memories of her and wish Karen and her would have been able to know each other. I miss her very much!
Hope all of you have a happy mother's day
