Memories Timeline


    • To my Mother,
      I was your first born. Daddy and you were so proud of me as a little curly headed girl at the dirt track races, eating fried dill pickles at Park& Eat, standing up in the back seat waving at soldiers and feeding my baby Brother dirt pies.(you both would laugh). You always dressed me in the best dresses, fur capes and black patten shoes. You taught me to be strong and to be a survivor. With your genes of beauty, you told me Saturday(10/29) how proud you are of me as your beautiful Daughter. You encouraged me to be educated and be independent because you never had the opportunity. Through my life, you taught me how to do so many things, cooking, balancing my bank account and cleaning a house. You were my rock and my best friend. Our relationship was a strong one as Mother Daughter that I will cherish for the rest of my life. You were the foundation of this family, without you, there’s nothing. Jesus lead you home where, you spoke just Saturday you couldn’t wait to be. You will be missed on this Earth but you are no longer in denial of pain. Go rest high on that mountain Mama. I love you then, now and forever. Your Daughter, Cathy Wood Beck
