Happy Birthday Mom

     Every year for the past five years during the last week of January my heart aches a little, rejoices a little and yearns for my mothers voice, humor and most of all... love. It has been five years ago that my sister's, brother and I lost our mother on April 3, 2005.

     Born Patricia Maxine Cowan on January 26, 1933 in French Camp California. She married her high school sweetheart Carl Monroe Edmonds during her late teens. She was a warm, loving, comforting and more times than not a very humorous and funny woman who lived her life for her husband and children. Her second loves were Elvis, John Wayne and the San Francisco 49er's.
