A Special Mom! That’s her above. Patti!

It’s All Mishegoss — Mother’s Day #84

Happy Mother’s Day!

I’m not going to spend a great deal of time writing up here today. It’s Mother’s Day and you should be hanging with Mom or if you’re a Mom reading this you should be kicking back and enjoying the day.

What I would like to do is list the Mother’s in my life that have made me what I am today. I want them all to know that without them in my life, my life would have never been so loving, special, and exciting.

Without further adieu here is the list:

My Grandmother, Rosario (RIP)

My Mom, Virginia (RIP)

My Mother-in-Law, Joan

My Wife, Patti

Our Daughter’s Lisa and Breanna

Happy Mother’s Day to All Mom’s!

Ciao,

Mark & Patti
