Dear Mom,

I never really understood what you meant when you said, "we are what we are."
Until I read this by Tennyson;

"that which we are, we are,
one equal temper of heroic hearts,
made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield"

Summer surprised us as we --
Went on in sunlight into the garden
And drank tea, and talked for an hour.

Go placidly amid the noise and haste Mom.

-Todd --X/O

"Frisch weht der Wind
Der Heimat zu
Mein Irisch Kind,
Wo weilest du?"

Thank you for all the great times, your kindness and generosity over the years. Thank you for all the wonderful wedding and baby showers, for the great back yard and basement parties. I will always cherish the numerous talks over the years, your advise came in handy on so many occasions. Love you, Patti.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families today. I too lived at Shudell when I was a toddler and you Mom was very young. Great memories of many great Symington gatherings. Love to all.

Ken, Todd and Paul - my deepest condolences on your mother's passing. As you may recall, both our families go back a long way - my Uncle Bob was friends with your Uncle Stan and several of your aunts - and have shared positives and grief throughout the years. Your mother was a fine woman, please take care and recall the positives.
