In no particular order, here are a few things I will never forget.
Swimming in the tank out at her grandma's house with the goldfish, then hanging out in the basement sneaking whiskey. :)
Her infectious smile and laugh.
Her stories!! She called me every morning around 10:00 and we'd talk till the guys came in for lunch at noon. I miss those phone calls!
Playing foosball at the high school rodeo finals.
Going to the bar in college at noon and playing pool till closing time.
Her obsession with NFL football. Particularly the Chiefs. I inherited her pink Chiefs beanie when she passed away. I will cherish it forever!
Her hamburger cheesy dip!!! I can never get mine to taste the same!
How she was the best mom in the world!!!
And finally, how hard she fought till the very end to beat that disease. And how gracious, kind, funny, and caring she was in life and in death.
