Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers, the Nuturers and all those who care for others.
My Mom has been gone for many years, but I carry her memory with me always.  The skinny little girl from a poor Okie family who grew up to be my Mom, Lorraine Strader.


To my Mother-in-law Pazquela Hernandez Gutierrez known to everyone as Patty.  I was blessed with the best Mother-in-law in the world.  Wherever we lived she came to visit us, be it Texas, Colorado, Georgia or Germany.  We became very close, closer than I was with my own Mom.  

Here she is with our daughter.  She came to see us in Germany and we took her to Spain where her family was from.


To my Sister-in-law Laura, who though hurting herself (bad shoulder) takes such good care of Mac's brother George.





To Isabel Mac's 86 year old cousin who still travels the world, she is an inspiration to us all.



Happy Mother's Day one and all
