Meet My Beloved Mother-DAISY Born in the Methodist parsonage in the village of Pleasant Hill,LA, and into a family of boys, Daisy grew up in a loving and godly home of parents dedicated to the Christ of the Gospel. All her life she made friends everywhere she went and tried to share a little “sunshine” ever chance she got. fl04daisyirene At 99 (2014) and counting, she is legally blind which prevents her from doing some of her favorite things: reading her Bible, writing cards and letters to all her extended family, and seeing pictures of her cherished grand-children and great grand-children. Mother was able to go to College with hard work and the help of friends that recognized her talents and gifts of music. She attended Mary-Hardin Baylor and graduated in Voice. She dedicated her musical life to Christ and His Church serving for many years as pianist, choir director, soloist, as well as in private instruction. She served her community too, active in missionary groups, DAR, and civil clubs and organizations promoting social causes. dp68th But perhaps her greatest legacy she will leave to me is that of her role as faithful WIFE to her husband Paul of 68 years, til his death in 2005. Her loyal support through the good times and the not so good, made his life complete in so many ways. So here’s to you Mother Daisy on this Mother’s Day 2009. May the Good Lord continue to be your Good Shepherd through each new day, knowing that we all love you and thank you for being the best mother you could possibly be.

I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, dwells in you as well” – The Apostle Paul writing to Timothy
