Happy Birthday, Mom!

Dorothy Faye Rusk Peterson

My mother-in-law would have been 98 years old today.
I truly miss her.
I would have baked this cake for you today, Mom.
It was your favorite!!

The picture of the church in the collage is a church built on land
donated by my father-in-law. Printed on the sign is,
"God can be your best friend"... my mother-in-law always reminded people
of this. How true!
