Today is a very special day! Today my parents would have been married for 33 years! It's amazing that it's been that long, they were married for 28 WONDERFUL years until my Mom "Vicky" got brain cancer! She was only 49 years old when she passed away! What a short life! In her lifetime she achieved marvelous things, and earned many awards for Grant Writing! She even went too Costa Rica as a Foreign Exchange student for three summers, she also was fluent in Spanish, she also had a college degree in Education, she also helped me with my schooling and Physical and Occupational therapy! She will be remembered most for what a MARVELOUS woman we ALL lost! It's a shame for all of you who NEVER met this remarkable woman, who was taken from us too short! I only was 24 years old when she passed away! My parents Vicky and John had a WONDERFUL marriage, a marriage that most couples dream about having! Both my parents are very proud of my progress of me becoming independent! It's a shame that my Mom didn't live see me accomplish my goal of living in my new apartment but I know she's happy and out of pain in heaven! This May 17th I'll be 30 years old and that was my Mom's goal for me to become independent and in my own place by the time I was 30, well guess what, I made my goal, I'm sure she's very happy! My Mom's relatives! My Aunt Natalie, Uncle Tim and my cousin's Emmie and Julia were here for a visit from out of town and they came and saw my new apartment for the first time, they were very pleased with how well I'm doing they left for home on Thursday! My Grandma Bena will be visiting in May, she's going to be staying with me at my new apartment, then she'll get too meet all of my friends! I'll love you Mom and Dad for a lifetime!
