Gone But Not Forgotten

We lost our mother on February 5 this year. She grew up in an orphanage in Memphis, Tennessee with 5 siblings. She left there to pursue her love of country music, and met my father along the way. They married and had 5 children. She loved her family more than anything, loved country music, poker, Matt Dillon, and Superstition Mountain. We love you, and we'll miss you, Mom.

  1. Your mom must have been one cool lady. You inherited her beauty and her talents!! Do you play poker? I didn't know your mom but your words make me wish I had spent time with her....singing over a few hands of poker. I'm pretty sure your mom and my mom would have been great friends! They had much in common.

    1. I never played, but she loved it. Casino, too, lol.
