Birthday Greetings!

Today is my Mom's birthday!


She was born...a few years ago...in Northern Utah.  Her father named her Cleo, after his favorite school teacher.  Then he wanted to add a little something for St. Patrick's Day, since that was the day of her birth, so he thought Patra would be a good middle name. Luckily Grandma had a few things to say about that and Cleo Patra was ruled out. 


Mom is a great example of  love, understanding, diligence, fortitude and charity. She made sure our childhood was filled with love and fond memories.
I could tell you some fun stories about her, but today I'll just leave it at this.


Thanks for everything you do for us!


Happy Birthday, Mom!  I love you!
