Our mom was a wonderful person with a good heart and great sense of humor. She probably read all the books out there and even the back of cereal boxes if she had nothing else to read. She was an avid KC Royals fan, and she watched Jeopardy and Wheel of fortune religiously. We would have to say that she was one of the smartest people we knew. We all have learned so much from her—she would always pick up the phone when you were stumped on a trivia question.
We will miss you, mom and know that you take a piece of each of our hearts with you.
