Set another place at the table, Momma loved the holidays. She would cook all morning, but still worry if it would be enough. Soon the family would gather around the table, someone would give thanks, we would fill our plates and Momma would take her place across the room to watch us feast. She would always eat last. We would finish our meal, clear the table with Momma begging us each to take food home.

Momma, you've gone to your new home where the family and table are much larger, but all is perfect. Hold our places. We love and miss you.
