Her Name was Ruth L Frye

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of my moms death. She was a wonderful lady, full of life and always smiling, nothing ever got her down. She said when she was diagnosed with cancer when she was 79 - that she wanted to live to be 85. She turned 85 on May 2nd 2006 and I remember her sitting on the edge of her bed that morning and she said, I made it to 85. And then June 29th she passed away. I sure wish you would have picked and older number to live to. I never thought I could miss a person as much as I miss her. Here is a picture of her (on the left, my mother in law Shirley in the center and me on the right) at her St. Patty's day party. It is so hard to believe it has been 3 years. Somedays it seems like yesterday and sometimes it seems so long since I have seen her.

Your blog about your Mom brought tears to my eyes. My Dear Mom is gone 17 years and I miss her as much today as I did the day she left for her Heavenly Home. I am the oldest of 4 girls and she was like my older sister to me. She left to me her knack for sewing, knitting, crocheting and yes Quilting. She did beautiful work and tried to teach me but I was too busy raising 5 kids. Well Mom I finally learned and look at all the friends I am making with Blogging. Thank You and Mebe Arge
