My Beautiful Mom 11-30-1934 to 3-12-2013

I have been trying to write this post for the last few weeks, but it has been too difficult.  My beautiful Mom passed away on March 12th. Her name was Shirley Bright, it was unexpected and very quick, so it has been very hard.  I thought I would share her life with you.  She was a wonderful Mother, and a wonderful Grandmother.  I will miss her every day for the rest of my life.
 She was the oldest child, when she was 4 years old, her father died, her sister was 2 and her Mom was pregnant for her third daughter, her father was only 28 years old when he died.

 This is her High School photo, I loved her hair, she was named after Shirley Temple. 
 She was such a beautiful Mom, her children and her grandchildren were everything to her.  She stayed home with us when I was young and I remember how much I loved to come home from school knowing she was waiting for us
 Our Wedding Day.
My Mom with Stephen my first son, she always wanted boys, she had two daughters, so she was thrilled to get three grandsons and two granddaughters.  She also was thrilled to get two great grandchildren born 11 days apart four years ago.
