To My Mothers…


To all my mothers…
…the women through the years that gave me everything I am…everything that makes me…me…

Karen's Glamour Shot--1958-59, Provo

My sweet mother, Karen…from whom I learned a mother’s unconditional love…and continue to learn that I have hers, each and every day…

…and so many more of my dear mothers through the generations…

To you, my dear mothers , I give so much thanks…you gave me my eyes, my nose, my hair, my smile…my faith, my courage, my love of family…everything that I ever was, am, or will ever be…

Words alone can never thank-you enough, but I can only say…
Thank-you.


I love you all…
