BC: The End
FC: The Brockinton Family Album | May, 2011
1: Mom I was born and looked like you, Only olive coloring was my hue. I know raising three alone was really rough, And sometimes you had to be very tough. But you did a great job and helped us grow, Into the adults who know we owe, Our smarts, integrity, and wit, To a great MOM who wouldn't quit, Until she raised us to be Christian adults, And was satisfied with her results. Now it's our turn to be the ones, To pass down our learning to daughters and sons. Happy Mother's Day to You! This is just a small thank you, For always being there in good times and bad, Which made us and our kids really glad. Love, Gina
2: Dear Mimi, I love you more than you will ever know or could imagine! You're the best grandma ever! I don't know what I would do without you. You've always been there from the moment I said, "Bring the Mimi!" You're my hero! I have pictures of you throughout my room. Whenever I look at them from when I was a baby and see you and me, I just can't help but smile. I love seeing you at church on Sundays! You'll always be in my heart. I love spending time with you! I hope when I'm a grandma, I'll be as great of one as you are. Someone can make you smile, someone can make you have tears in your eyes, but it takes someone special to make you smile with tears in your eyes... I love you Mimi! -Ashlan
3: Dear Mimi, My favorite memory is when you took me to the Old Mill and fed the ducks. You're a great grandmother and I love you very much! Blake
