Flashback Friday

O.k. Susan - it's time for your tribute! Where do I start?! I could only find these 3 pics of you with your firstborn, your Kevin, and this one makes me want to cry like a baby!! To think of the day my true love was born and to think about all that you and he went through. For those of you who don't know, it was a miracle both Kevin and his mom came out of his birth and delivery alive! You see, Susan (or any of her doctors) didn't know it but she had a broken pelvis from a car accident and so during delivery Kevin was stuck for a very unsafe amount of time. He was already in the birth canal so it was to0 late for a c-section! The only thing the doctor's could do was re break her pelvis, use a suction vacuum (notice the cone head) and forceps (if you look up close at Kev's face, he has a scar from those) and wait to see what happened. After Susan's heart stopping and starting again and Kevin's heart rate dropping dramatically, everything turned out o.k. Unbelievable! Susan, it amazes me how strong you were then and how strong you still are to this day. I look up to you for all you do even though you have the health problems you have. You just keep on going and going and doing for others! Thank you from all of us who you lend a (happy) helping hand to!!

This is a cute and funny picture! I love the fact that I can ask you about your children and their childhood and you remember so much about them and their stories and such! You always respected your kids for who they were and their individualities. You are so proud of them and see the good much more than any bad. You believe in them and their dreams and goals and support all of the good things they wish to do. Susan you are one of the best mothers and mother-in-laws there ever was!

I don't know what I did to deserve Kevin, let alone a one-of-a-kind group of in laws I gained. Susan I could not have asked for a better second family. I can't believe I was able to acquire a second mom that I love like my own! How could I luck out so much - twice?! You are so loving, kind, thoughtful, hard working, talented in the home, selfless, full of charity, patient, and you're so fun to talk to and you love to make friends with everyone! I love you with all my heart and soul! Thanks for everything you've done for me and taught me!!

Dear Annette,

Thank you so much for the tribute! It is my honor that you feel that way! I love you too, as though you were my own! Thanks for being the wonderful person you are!
As for looking like Audrey? I can see it, but I wonder if you noticed that she has YOUR mouth! They are exactly alike! Cool, huh! We'll have to find a picture of Kellie near that age.
Looking at your pictures with your parents, wow, you are so right, Kyle does take after you!!!! That is a fact!

Have a great day today!

Love you
Mom H
