I used to wrinkle my nose when people would say you look just like your Mom. I mean who wants to look like someone 30 years older than they are. Now it is the greatest compliment I could receive. She insisted that she stay at home after Dad passed and she did it for 5 1/2 years! She was only away from home for 3 weeks. I expect she and Dad are having a great reunion right now. Miss you Mom.
