if a certain baby girl wasn't born years ago in a hospital in Long Beach, CA. She never knew her father, who was killed a few months earlier as an Army Air Corps air cadet. At a time when train travel was difficult for civilians, due to the war effort, she and her mother were able to head back home to South Texas to build their lives.
In case you haven't guessed, that's my mother I'm talking about. Happy birthday Mom! Thank you for all you and Dad have done for your two children, and for your grandchildren. Thanks for reading and your support here as well. We love you!
