I always knew March 3rd was a Special Day !
because my mother was born on that day !
I am wanting to dedicate this day to Florida and my mother ! (Jean Buhk)
She was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
And her beautiful resting place is Florida !
May my mom rest in peace !
May the Sun shine down on to Florida and my mom’s resting place always. As these are, and were the most beautiful things ever !
