Happy Birthday, Mama!

Today is my Mom's birthday. She would have been 69 today, but God decided to take her home in 2004. This picture is from early 2001. My Mom is holding my oldest, Peter (left), and my nephew, Tim, my sister's youngest. They were born 12 days apart, and my Mom loved holding both of them together. Mama, to me, Nonni to my boys, also called Nana, Mimma, and Grandmaw (had to add the Texas drawl to that one!)-we miss you and love you! Happy Birthday!
