Today is a sad day. My mother passed away today of breast cancer. To those that knew her she was a very sweet and friendly woman. She went out of her way to make people feel welcome and enjoyed chatting with everyone she met. She loved camping and often could be found at other people's campfires or under their awnings having great conversations. It was as if they were her long lost friends. To her that was what camping was all about seeing new places and meeting new friends. I got my love of camping from her. Although my camping was way different than hers she always supported me as I did with her. My mom will be missed but I know when I sit by the campfire I know her presence will always be there.
