My Mama, Mary, embraced life and made it an adventure! She loved her family, friends, yellow daisies, vacationing with her great nephews, the beach, HGTV and the New York Yankees. She was the heartbeat of our family. Before each family wedding she insisted that she wasn’t going to dance because she was ALWAYS caught on camera, but as soon as she heard the music, she was the first one on the dance floor. She told funny stories. She loved animals. She loved driving around to look at Christmas lights and decorations. She was proud of me AND told me.

Diagnoses, treatments, surgeries, procedures, infections, hospital stays, more treatments, more surgeries and even more hospital stays… that was a small portion of a beautiful life lived to its fullest.
