A little joke, perhaps not so untrue, is that my mother's only suffering was when I would sing to her. Her language skills had been in decline for several years. By the time she passed away, she had very few English words left. However, she did have a language and laughter all her own. My sister Wendy and I dubbed it "Drunken Sailor" for it's uncorked flow... NOT that she was drinking! Wendy and I would routinely, and genuinely, exchange a "Thank You" at the accomplishment of a task in our mother's care. On precious occasions, Mom would start that exchange! She did express herself with her eyes, brows, and smiles. My heart is light. Mom, the songbirds are singing! It's beautiful! Don't you think?

I'd like to wish Mom an extra happy day in the hereafter! Today would have been her 96th birthday. I'd like to believe that she's had enough time to reconnect with multiple loved ones, including her first born, Steve, and is ready for that Waltz with Dad - both moving effortlessly in their beautiful dance. I'm grateful to Teresa for posting as she is family. Rita and Stan are all about family. She would be pleased to know that Diane, Calvin and I along with Diane's oldest and youngest of 4 children went to visit her brother Bob and his wife Eileen. Bob says he's the last of the Mohekins.. as the middle two of their generation, Dexter and Frank are in the mix of loved ones Rita is now with. Our reunion was tentative due to the threat of bringing ill health to them unintentionally. We kept recommended distance while we shared fears & theories, goods & stories. It was an old fashioned family visit that Mom yearned for. I like to believe that she and our departed loved ones were blessed by it. I know I am! This is my tribute to Mom as my husband Joe once again read the eulogy as he eloquently did for Dad. I am so thankful for him, them, my siblings and their children. And for all who came before us. I want & pledge to do better honoring them in the here and now.

Rita and Stan will always be a part of very happy childhood memories, as my mother Louise Cherbonneaux (Tiss) and I had so many wonderful adventures with them in North Carolina at their cabin. Such gentle and loving people, they will forever be a part of why I love the outdoors, find peace in the mountains and joy in family. My first and last motorcycle ride was with Calvin, whose gentle nature and kind spirit did not fall far from the tree of his parents. Even though life can place distance and time between us, Rita, Stan and Calvin will always be in my memories and in my heart, they are part of the tapestry of my life. Teresa (Fahrney) Clawson, MD

I remember visiting Rita and Stanley in N.C. along with my sister Teresa Fahrney and my mother Martha Louise (Cherbonneaux) Fahrney when I was about 15 years old. Stanley made me a tiger eye ring when we visited them up there; I still have that ring. I believe my mother, Louise Fahrney was her second cousin. My grandfather Maxwell James Cherbonneaux Sr., was my mother's father and my grandmother's name was Mattie Lou (Boswell) Cherbonneaux his wife. My mother's sisters and brothers were: Maxine (Cherbonneaux) Lee; Elba (Cherbonneaux) Duncan; James Cherbonneaux; Max Cherbonneaux, Jr. I wish to send my condolences to all of her children, grandchildren and great grand children. Rita and Stanley were so sweet to us every time we had a chance to visit them. Valerie (Fahrney) Israels-Maxted
