This photo was taken in 1958 when Ma and Dad moved to Gays Mills from Milwaukee. They moved out of the big city that was filled with crime to a small town in Southwestern Wisconsin to raise their children in a safe environment.

Have you told her you love her lately?

When was the last time you visited her?

Have you thanked her for being such a good mom?

Where would you be without her?
