Happy Mother's Day!


East Bay Life solicited readers' tributes to the special moms in their lives; here's what you had to say:


You're the greatest mom in the world! You get me Legos, make tasty shrimp Mozambique, and are always there for me. You're like a superhero without the cool costume. I hope you love all the drawings I make for you.

I love you!


Happy Mother's Day, Mom. Thank you for being the best grammie and my best friend. You are a role model for Ella and me. we look forward to many more adventures with you….just not the bag in the convertible kind:)

In memory of Cindy Davock:

We little knew that morning

God was going to call your name

In life we loved you dearly

In death we do the same

It broke our hearts to lose you,

you did not go alone.

For part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,

Your love is still our guide,

And though we cannot see you,

You are always by our side.

Our family chain is broken

And nothing seems the same

But as God calls us one by one

The chain will link again.

For Sandra Davock:

When I think of all the things you do,

the ways in which you care.

I am filled with a sense of gratitude

and pride that is always there.

I seldom take the time to tell you that I am

so happy you are my Stepmom,

so I will tell you now what is in my heart.

You are the best Stepmom

any person could have!

Amy, Keri and Jodi


Dear Lady

Dear lady of the village, we

celebrate your life.

You embraced faith and family

Amidst the days of strife.

We look around you,

You are circled,

By all that you hold dear.

You join the ladies of all the villages

Whose lives have been this clear.

Written by daughter Sara



Thank you for you have ever done for me. In school, with sports, anything. I could not have gotten where I am today without you. You are by far the best Mom in the world. I love you! Happy Mothers Day!

Your son, Davio

Happy Mother's Day today and many more to come! Thank you for being the most amazing mother your children could ever ask for. We are so blessed to have you. You provide us with eternal love, security and happiness. Your wisdom and love have made all the difference in our lives. Our lives would not be the way they are today if we didn't have a mom that worked so unbelievably hard and cared so much. We have learned volumes from you. From your wonderful home cooked meals, your sweet hugs and kisses and intelligent advice. You are truly one in a million. Please take this day to realize all you have accomplished. We love you so much.

Always and Forever,

Terry, Frank, Chrissy and Maria xoxo
