Mother's Day tributes for May 10, 2009

Happy Mothers' Day: 1st Mother's Day without Mom, Janice Corbin:

'She was not only my Mom, but my bets friend,' Rita Neat says'

This my first Mother's Day without my mom, Janice Corbin.

It was such a hard day for me as I went to the cemetery to take flowers to my mom. I went to her house and picked one of every kind that was blooming and took to her.

She had so lovingly planted all of them. As I sat there, I thought how blessed I was to have her as my mom.She was not only my mom but my best frriend. I love her and miss her so much. I was always told you would never know how much you love your child until you have your own. How true that is.

There is no greater gift than that of the love of a mother for her child. God has richly blessed my life and I am so thankful to have had the time I did with my mom. If you haven't taken the time to tell your mom how much she means to you and how much you love her, take the time and do it now.

You will never regret it. Happy Mother's Day to all mothers. God bless you!

A grateful Mother's Day tribute to Queen of Mothers, Lady Katherine!

To Katherine Lepiarczy

Everyone's Mother should be honored especially for Mother's Day. My Mother, Mrs. Gerhard Lepiarczyk, whom I endearingly call Lady Katherine, deserves to be treated like a Queen on Mother's Day. My Mother is precious to me. Lady Katherine has often reminded me to give roses while people are living. Throughout my life I have always known how richly blessed I am to be a Gift from God presented to my Mother. So, Mother, this tribute rose is for you!

My Mother is a native of Adair County and has lived in Jefferson County for most of her life. Lady Katherine was born and grew up in the Concord community near Garlin. Katherine Louise Grider Lepiarczyk is the Queen of the Kentucky Lepiarczyk family. After living in Jefferson County for many years, people in Louisville yet ask Mother where she is from. In her enchanting Adair County accent, she proclaims, "I am from Adair County; and I'm proud of it"! Mother Dearest, I am proud of you. I hope and pray you enjoy many more happy Mother's Days because you are the Queen of Mothers for me, Karen, and David.

"You were Daddy's Garlin Darlin' from way back when; now you're the Mother of three of Papa Daniel and Mother Grider's nine grandchildren"...

I Love You, Mom; and Happy Mother's Day 2009! May God bless our Lepiarczyk family always.

Your devoted son, with love always,
s/Erwin Heinrich Lepiarczyk II

Happy Mother's Day to Debby Symmes

This is a message to Debbie Symmes for Mother's Day. She is a great Mother, Wife, Partner and Friend. Deb is the hardest worker I've ever known. She works her hardest at making sure our family strides together and loves together. After 21 years of marriage I'm still amazed at how much effort she puts into our family to keep us strong. We all love you Debbie, Happy Mother's Day with many more to come.

With all our love,

Jim, Danielle, Richie and Katrina

Happy Mother's Day, Jean Baker
Happy Mother's Day, Jean Baker:

My Mom, Jean Baker, is one of the most caring people, devoted Mom, devoted Wife, devoted Christian you will ever meet. When I was little I remember she would make mashed potatoes every night. if that is what we wanted, she would read just one more bedtime story because we just couldn't go to bed without it, even though she was tired from the day.

If there was something we needed she saw that we had it even if that meant that she went without (that goes for my Dad too). When I say "we" I mean me and my two brothers Bryan Baker and Roger Baker.

She gave up more things for us then she should have at times, but that shows you what kind of Mom she is. I want to honor her on this Mother's Day and every day for being the kind of person I can only hope to become some day.

I love you Mom, you are my rock, you are my friend, and thank you for everything!
