With Mother's Day just passing I wanted to make sure that I paid tribute to a wonderful Mother.
Cora Mae Killinger was my dear mother-in-law and a jewel of one at that. When I think about the many gifts that Cora gave to life one comes to me stronger than others and that is "sweetness". I can truly say she was one of the sweetest women that I have ever known in my lifetime. She had such a humble spirit, gentle and kind. For all of the years that I had been part of their family I can honestly say that I NEVER heard Cora say anything Bad about anyone! What a example of true holiness. Cora loved nature, traveling, most of all she loved her family! I remember so vivid when she had to sell their home and move to assisted living, I asked her if she was ok with the move, and I will never forget her answer to me, "it's just another chapter in my book"! What an attitude to have. I hope that Cora knew just how much that I loved her. She was a perfect example of what a mother-in-law should be. With mother's day approaching I knew that Harold was really suffering by his mother's absence on this special day, so I decided to set a dozen of beautiful two-toned red roses in the vestibule of our church in memory of his dear mother! He was so happy that her memory was being honored. Cora we all love and miss you .
