She is a praying women and that keeps an umbrella of protection from all things bad, and keeps all of the family safe. My dad had a stroke in 2000 and passed away in 2006, during his time of recovery she stayed by his side and helped him and just loved him thru his journey. She is the pillar of strength and the bond that keeps our family together in good time’s and bad. Always the listening ear, and the person we can lean on when we can’t stand on our own. Full of love and compassion for all of her family especially her large number of grandchildren and great and great great grandchildren.

I just wanted you to know how much I love you

Much Love and respect
Humbly , your daughter”

Ashley Azak “Growing up in a family that has been effected by residential school, my mom would always say “my mom did the best that she could” and I understand what she meant now. Because my mom really did the best that she could. one gift my mom gave us was the gift of basketball. As kids my parents would start off our basketball careers and faithfully attend almost every tournament we played in, from 10 and under through to adulthood in the big show (anbt). She beams with pride, win or lose, she appreciates her adult children still making her proud on the floor. For that I am always grateful.”

David Morrison “Hello
My wife deserves to be pampered 🙂 now I know we all can say this, but mine deserves the world, which j myself continue to give to her. Donna LePretre has been so busy the past few years, she has completed four years of schooling, completing her BSW program, while at the same time blessing me with two sons!! She never gave up in school, got greet grades and has continued being the best mother she can to our boys. No one deserve a total day to be spoilt than her 🙂 I would love it if she was chosen to win this amazing prize package. As CFNR is our nation, Our station.

Justina Jenkins “I cannot put into words how much my mom means to me. She had me at a very young age and had no choice but to let my grandparents raise me.
My mom and I are the best of friends. She is the glue that holds our family together. She is a cancer survivor and she recently helped my dad through his cancer ordeal.
No matter what my mom goes through, she does it with a smile on her beautiful face and Thanksgiving in her heart.
She retired from the cannery 2 years ago, to take care of my very young grandson. That’s the kind of sacrifices my mother makes for people that she loves.
I love you with all my heart mom and I thank God every day for healing you from Cancer. Thank you for always being there for me and my children and grandchildren and your great-grandchildren. I can’t imagine life without you. Everything I am, is because of you.
I love you Mrs. Mary Lincoln!”

Marlene Robinson “MOM is important to me because she carried, nurtured me for 9 months. She taught me everything I know today. My mom cared for me and my six brothers. She worked until she was 65 years old, and only quit because of medical reasons. Mom was always a hard worker, a good person to listen to and learn from, she counselled the grand children when they got into mischief. She was a community minded person and always cared for the well being of fellow seniors. She was very generous. the one thing that comes to mind is she liked to make us laugh by doing silly things or saying silly stuff. My Mother is and always be the greatest. May she rest in Peace.”

Shantel Pahl “Mother, Wendy Pahl.
You have been the strongest most influential woman in my life. You’ve seen me through my journey since the day I was born.

I couldn’t ask for a better mother! She is my idol! I LOVE YOU MOM!”

Marie mckay “My mom means alot to many she works at the school and she also takes care of her 2 grandsons, my own son never leaves her side, she works hard for everyone and asks for nothing in return”

Dylan Sookdeo “My mom means the world to me because as a single parent, she has always been there for me as my mom and dad. She has never caused me to want or need because her selflessness has always put myself and my siblings first. My mom never rewards herself and I think she should because she works very hard and never gets much time for herself. Whatever time she has is spent on her 4 children that always need her. My mom is my world and is proof that a family can still be whole without a dad.”

Norma Joseph “My mom means the world to me, I don’t know what I would do without her. My mom is such a caring woman, she will put the needs of others before her own and that is what she’s taught me. She would do anything in her power to help out our family if needed. My mother not only raised my two younger brothers and myself but helped raise numerous of my cousins and my two step siblings, and now she is raising my twin nieces. My mother is superwoman, aside from keeping up with the twins active life(baseball/soccer/skating) she keeps to a healthy lifestyle of her own by exercising daily, playing baseball and going on daily walks with our family. She continues to care for not only my twin nieces but for my grandmother as well. Our big family is very tight knit and we hold ALOT of functions together, my mom does a lot of planning and a lot of baking/cooking for these functions. I am soo thankful for my mom and I don’t know what I would do without her, she has taught me a lot and I will for sure be celebrating her this Mother’s Day as well as the days ahead!! Love you mom and all that you do!! Xoxo”

Leslie Mohr “My mom means the world to me. My best friend, my world. She’s wiped my tears and always encouraged me to be strong. If it weren’t for her I wouldn’t be the woman I am today! I’ve graduated and obtained jobs at a young age. I’m so very thankful for her and how I was brought up. Love you so much mom! (Shar)”

Sue-Ann Norton “My mom the best and she should win this think cause the best mom ever”

Pamela Venn “My mother and I have had our ups and downs over the years but we worked past all that and are actually very close now…I can’t imagine not having her in my life, therefore; I will cherish our time”

Pamela Start “My mother has taught me many things in my life. How to be strong, how to listen and how to love. She has helped me in ways i didn’t even know I needed the help. She has been there to support me in everything I have tried doing. By doing this she has shaped me into the person I am today. By teaching me these things and being so supportive she has showed me how to be an amazing mother just like her. I now know how hard it is to be a parent and how much of a blessing it is. To be able to watch your children grow and to have them fill your life with joy. I now understand all the sacrifices she has made and how hard she had to work to let us have a very happy life, because of this I am forever great full. I really hope that I am able to be just like her, to be able to express the same amount of love to my children as I feel now.”

Donna Lepretre “My mother is Dolly LePretre. I know we all, well most of us who are still fortunate to have our mothers have come to appreciate them and all they do. I too am a mother of three busy boys, so when it comes to being a grandmother and mother; mine is simply the best!! My mother took time off work to be with my children so I could go to school. Now to me that was a huge sacrifice to her and my father, but was for myself and her grandchildren, as I am now finishing up my fourth year!! Thank you mom. I love you! And I appreciate you!”

Within the past few years,our/my Mother has had an Anurysm,suffered 2 Heart Attacks,had an Above the Knee Amputation,and Today,is still with Us.

Sydney England “What does a mom mean to me? My mom means the world to me. Literally. Without her I wouldn’t be where I am today, writing this amazing speech about her. She gave me life, and raised me to be someone I am proud to be today. My mom is kind, generous, caring, and loving. We have had our ups and we have had our downs but at the end of the day she will always be my mom, the lady who was always there for me and I will always be there for her. My mom is smart and I ask her advice for everything. I want to make my mom proud of me the way she made me proud and I will never stop trying, in this world or the next.”

    is a choice you make everyday to put someone else’s happiness and we’ll being ahead of your own. To teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when your not sure what the right thing is.
    A mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one can take. It takes someone brave to be a mother, someone strong to raise a child and someone special to love someone more than herself
