Agreed. I would like to add...
-Beautiful big teethy Curtis smile. I just love this so much about her. Jerry and Mary have the same.
-Remarkable blue eyes. So unusual and beautiful. Especially the last few days
-Polite and proper. She taught us all to be gentlemen and ladies like her and dad. To the very end she would try to cover her mouth when she coughed, even though she couldn’t lift her arms. She made sure we wiped her chin, avoided spills, and she kept apologizing for gurgles. I’ll tell you what, if roles were reversed and I was all broken up, I don’t think I’d be nearly so proper and put together.
-Indomitable. Well said, Gregg. I would have said stubborn but I like your word better. That gene also passed down in spades. I’ll just leave it at that, except that I’ve come to realize that stubbornly holding on to a vision, loving people who don’t always deserve it, and enduring pain and challenges and never giving up Is truly one of the best qualities in the world. Other words that describe this quality: determined, committed, a force of nature :)
-Lastly (my favorite) She made things so fun! Road day trips with a basket full of bread and cheese and cookies. Trips to Grand Junction, we’d always get a Wendy’s Frosty’s when we clearly couldn’t afford it. We’d work super hard, but then she’d read us books. So many! Summer of the Monkeys, Sugar Blues, Anne of Green Gables... so many! She’d play games too! Mostly Rook, because she dominated us! Always making the best treats and desserts and yummy food! Omgosh! So many good times brought to us by none other than Margie!
