Mom loved people
She loved her children
Her grandchildren
She loved all people
If she thought you were going to be alone, especially on a holiday, you were invited to join us instead
Mom played with us
She sang with us
Read to us
Danced with us
Laughed with us
She was silly, very silly
We played inside and out
In the snow
Mom loved to talk
And talk on the phone
Just don’t ask her to call someone she did not know
Or order something on the phone
No way
Mom loved pumpkin waffles
And taco Tuesday’s
And ice cream
Mom loved Macys
Mom loved the Chiefs
Mom loved politics
Mom led by example
She taught us to love and to care
Thank you, Mom!
I love you!!!


My beautiful, amazing mother passed yesterday. Here legacy is this.
If there was one talent she had, just one thing to describe her, it was that she knew how to love. Those that know how to love, those individuals who love unconditionally, they are eternal. Love you, Mom.

My Mamaw left us while she was sleeping peacefully Thursday morning. She and Grandad would have celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary tomorrow. She was a funny, sharp, moral, and stylish human. She reared four children and had five grandkids. She was dedicated to serving her church in Lee’s Summit and cared immensely about doing good.
But she was more than I can sum up in a few words so this will have to do. She fueled creativity in us, playing the most outrageously funny games which always ended in everyone laughing so hard our sides hurt. Mamaw loved football, especially the Chiefs, shopping, talking to her people, and with my brother and me (at minimum) she would talk forever about politics. She cared for everyone and everything. We talked often and always laughed. I keep thinking if I just pick up my phone and call her, all will be well. I cannot tell you how much I already miss her.
My family, once again, will hold one another tight and love my grandad, who’s world has been utterly rocked, while we say goodbye to one of the best.
I hit the jackpot with my grandparents. Not only did I grow up with my mom and dad’s parents, but I had Mamaw’s mom and (step)dad, her grandmother, and my grandad’s mom. That’s four grandparents, three great grandparents and a great great grandmother!
Love you always, Mamaw ❤️
