Mother’s Day

Doris-Nurse: Doris - Nurse

Doris Winkler, 1933-2004

Today my mother reached her final Mother’s Day.

Goodbye, Mom. I love you. Thank you.

Update: she now has a tombstone with the inscription she requested a few days before her death.

    The Spirit of unselfish Love
    By Deborah Witgen Hedin

    Right from that very first footstep, whatever at work , or at play,
    We’ve all have special companion
    To lovingly show us the way.

    With a heart of unending compassion,
    She always had patience to spare:
    When times didn’t look very hopeful,
    We always knew someday cared!!

    We all have this “guardian angel,”
    A wonderful gift, from above.
    Most of us know her as Mother…
    The spirit of unselfish love!!

    Dan, I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom. I’m sure you miss her very much. I never got to meet her, but she must have been terrific, because she produced a great kid. Hang in there and be well.
