Let me tell you a little bit about my amazing mom, my mother was a phenomenal woman, along with my dad they raised five kids. They were great parents that tried to give us the world but also they instilled great family and spiritual values in us. After working in a spring factory for many years she knew God had bigger and better plans for her so one day she quit her job, went to college and got her BS and Masters Degrees. She loved children and wanted to make a difference in their lives so she decided to take a job as a guidance counselor where she found her passion and purpose, she loved education and she loved working with and helping kids.She was an inspiration to all that knew her. Mom loved God, her husband and family, her coworkers and church family, she truly never met a stranger, she loved everyone and everyone loved her. She was a very spiritual woman that was full of faith. Some of my fondest memories of her were our many family vacations and our trips to the Berry Patch(notice the picture)where we would take the hour and twenty minute drive and talk, laugh and sing gospel songs all the way there, eat our ice cream at our favorite picnic table, then talk, laugh and sing gospel songs all the way back home❤she was truly amazing. Mom had good days and some not so good days and unfortunately early one morning she left her home, a six day and night excruciating search for her followed and on the seventh day one of the searchers found her, not in the way we wanted but thankfully she was found and that gave us closure. It also got my family involved in the awesome Alzheimer’s Association, through the Association we’ve been able to learn more about Alzheimer’s and its effects on love ones, it also has been therapeutic in that we’ve been able to fundraise and bring more awareness and attention to this disease. Our mom brought cities and communities together, we strive to keep the community together. Even in death God continues to use our beautiful, amazing mother, one year later the community still speaks highly of her. Our mission and goals are to continue to support the Alzheimer’s Association by helping anyway that we can to fight and bring and end to this terrible disease. We joined and started supporting the Alzheimer’s Association to honor our mother and to keep her memory alive, we continue to support because we truly do not want another family to go through what we have gone through. So don’t be reactive, be proactive, join us, join “Miss Heddie’s Kids” and together we can be victorious. We love you all, Sincerely Bert Dawkins and Family ❤
Thank you for helping advance Alzheimer's support, care and research.
