Sally(Mom) Speaks

This is my mom, Sally Ann.

She was born on April 29, 1937 and passed away on February 14, 2006.

Normally I wouldn't post here with a picture included but I think its fitting for this posting. I'd like to tell you all a few of her words of wisdom...this is after all "She Speak".

"I love you, but I don't like you very much right now" This was something she would say when I did something stupid or broke the rules...I mean when my brothers broke the rule and I got the blame!

"If I say the moon is made of green cheese, then by god its made of green cheese!" This was something said when I dared question the validity of anything she said, or if I pushed the issue on my request after being told no.

"When I say jump, you'd better ask how high" Does this one really need any explanation??

"Don't get mad, get even" I heard this one the most when I was playing competetive soccer. Mom would yell that to me when games started to get a bit rough. She would also tell me the same thing when I was fighting with my brothers.

"If its worth doing, its worth doing right" She was always the perfectionist when it came to her crafts...who am I kidding, she was a perfectionist in everything that she did.

"3's" Mom made this up. It stands for I love you. She would use this when my brothers and I were too cool to say I love you in front of friends at school or on the soccer field.

There are many more things she used to say, but not enough room in the world to publish it.

Mom will be dearly missed, but she will live on forever in my heart!
