Paul wrote, “I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.”

(Her wedding day)
I wish she were here so I could thank her for taking care of me when I was sick, for coming to help me when Jolie was born. I wish she were here so I could thank her for every card and note she sent with articles or things she thought I'd like to see or read about.
(Note from mom)
Mom, thanks for looking down on me from heaven and for being there when I get there. Mom, I wish you were here so I could thank you for all the things I forgot or didn't thank you for. I cherish who you were. I admire who you were. I wish you were here so I could thank you for the times you prayed for me for things I didn't know I needed. I wish you were here so I could take you out to dinner today or cook dinner for you, give you a corsage and be with you in church. I wish you were here so I could hold your hand today and tell you I love you and how much I appreciate you.
(Our last Mothers Day 2002 in Elgin)
Mom, I love you for all the things you gave me, for all the things you did for me, for all the things that still live in my heart, and for all the memories you created in love.
Happy Mother's Day mom!
New International Version (NIV)
12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
