I have fond memories of your mom when I was very young.. not sure of age… old enough to have to help watch some of you children.. I remember helping your mom to gather up her stuff..I loved being around Aunt Elena… she was a Hoot as you all know..and had to be a strong woman.. and as she said… she had the most beautiful legs… I try to imitate her on that..been working them out to help them look better … ahahh I do wish I would have been able to get up there to visit with her and everyone… just kept finding reasons why I had to wait… and waited too late..I am sorry and know you all will miss Mom… I know I miss mine…I love you all..
