Cori: I have the best mom ever. It seems like the older I get, the more I understand how much you love us and how many sacrifices you made (and still make every day) so that we could be the best and have the best. You have taught me how to be a better wife and homemaker, and made this crazy transition in my life so much easier. I think the reason the four of us are such great friends as well as siblings is because of your influence. You will always be remembered in my mind as someone who loves her husband, and her kids. Thanks so much for being such a great example. I love you!
Megan: I've realized what a great job Mom has done teaching her kids how to be good people. One memory I have of my mom is when she took me to see Hairspray. On the drive home, we just talked and joked and laughed about life. Mom has always been my rock, even when I wasn't quite ready to hear what she had to say. Even when we disagree, I know she's still there. Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!
Ian: She knows how to make Taco Ring.
Jillian: When I was about 3 mom and I were in her room watching ice skaters on TV. I told mom I thought all the skaters were really thin. And then, being the little whipper snapper that I was, I told her that the only thing thin on her was her lips! We've laughed about that ever since. Thanks for being such a great mom and having a sense of humor with us. Happy Birthday! I love you!
Hope you have a great day today! We love you!!
love, Your kiddos
