My life changed dramatically and forever when I lost TJ.

I welcome you to follow along as I adjust to my "new normal".

It is not all puppies and ice cream but it is my life....real and honest.

I Love You Mom!

JoAnna Fay Bolton
July 17, 1931 - July 28, 2010

Mark, Mom, Alberta & Sandy

Thanksgiving of 2005 my sister, Alberta, bought these "Mom Likes Me Best" shirts for all of us siblings to wear. We all got a kick out of it as did Mom. The fact was...Mom did like all of us best and we all knew it.

I am going to miss you Mom. I love you!


  1. I am sorry for the pain that you went through - for your entire family. But glad your mother is now free of hers.

    Thank you for sharing your journey with me.

    I love you truly. You are so much a part of my life now.

  2. Such a cool picture. Thanks very much for sharing that with us all. Peace to you and your siblings.

  3. That's a great picture of you all. I feel you sadness, and I'm sorry. I am so glad Les and I got to come out and visit before JoAnna passed. Take care Sandy!

  4. Sorry I missed that post, Sandy and am so late in offering you love and sympathy. You've had a truly rotten time lately but you have the spirit to come through. Hugs from me.

  5. Sandy, I am so sorry I didn't read this earlier. Wow, you have had so much loss in the last year, including your mule.

    Life just isn't fair sometimes. I'm sending you my best thoughts and I hope you can catch them.


Please, let me know your thoughts
