Happy Birthday, Mom


Vera Jeanette (or maybe Vera Helen) Adams Sullivan, October 16, 1925 - December 30, 2000.

Her name appears as "Veronica" on at least one document -- baptismal certificate or birth certificate; the middle name "Jeanette" was on some, "Helen" on others, in the category of driver's licenses and such. Maybe my tendency to fool around with my name is inherited.

Happy belated, Mom. Revenge is yours - I have a daughter just like me! Only cuter. Sure miss hearing your voice. I'm going down to see that new greatgrandson of yours. Miss you more than words can say.
Your number 4 daughter,
Julie ( or is it Julia?)

You are, and always have been, my biggest fan. I am so proud to be Vera's daughter and hope you are still proud to be my mom.

I love and miss you every moment of every day.
