Mom. We didn't have money, We didn't have "things" but we weren't poor. You always did the best you could with what you were given. You were the original lemon aid maker. You took me hunting for the first time. You fed us, you disciplined us and you raised 3 good men and a daughter on your own. I will always remember you dropping me off the day I joined the Army. I cried while we hugged because I knew I was leaving my home for good. You raised me like that to be strong and independent. I hope there is a place in heaven for single mothers like you to rest and be cared for because you deserve a good rest and some happiness for yourself. I will miss you the rest of my life. I wish I were a better son to you when I had the chance. I also did the best I could. Eternal love Kevin
