MEMA! The mother of my children is lacking in no way. My daughters only have to look to you for a compass, a map or GPS to guide them down the roads, the highways or the interstates of motherhood. No matter how small the town the road leads to, what you do as a mother will work there. The large city that the highways lead to what you teach as a mother. It will work there as well.The interstates that lead to the metropolisis where millions live Boo, there too is a need of your mothering skills.

You Mema have laid out the perfect course for our daughters to follow. When you are 84 you are going to be just like Mama from the Hollow. The example that all her children want to follow. It is because of you that my sons know what to look for in a wife. They have seen you walk side by side with me as an equal. My sons have seen with their own eyes or their hearts the pride you have taken in nurturing each of them into mature human beings. You have showered each of them with a proper portion of love and discipline. You my love have protected our children when they needed protecting and allowed them to venture out and learn for themselves when that was what was needed.

My darling you are all that a mother should be, and it brings me great pleasure to wish you a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY.
Your loving husband:


M – Matriarch – The leader of our family. The one who sets the pace. The one who speaks to God on behalf of our saving grace. Yes, that’s who you are, our matriarch on Mother’s Day.

O – Origin – It is from you we originated. It is from you which we come. In you the seed of life was planted and a new family was born. Fertile was the soil, look how we have grown. Because of your loving care no one in this family will ever be alone. We will always know where you are, we will always have a home.

T – Teacher – The very first word I spoke, it came from you. Mother you know better than anyone that this is true. I’m sure that word was “Mother” because my first teacher was you. You are still my greatest teacher, that’s something you will always do.

H – Homemaker – A professional who leaves the home each day, goes to work in a man’s world at least that’s what a man would say. She comes home and prepares the meal that nourishes us each day. For those of you that say homemaker is a bad word to say, how about the professional women that do it each day? It’s because of a homemaker that I’m here today.

E – Extraordinary – I know there are many letters that make up this word but extraordinary seems so small when compared to the mother of us all. You are the very best, created so man would not be alone. God sent his only son to a mother to insure a proper home. He also gave her the knowledge to know when her to let them move on.

R – Resilient – You can make something from nothing. You can take away our pain. You make us laugh simply by the way you call our name. You can take a simple meal that most would throw away and turn it into a feast I will tell my children of someday. You can take hand-me-downs and make them look brand new. You can take a troubled child and make them forever love you. These are just a few of the resilient things that mothers do.


M adre, eres lider de la familia. Eres la que siempre habla con Dios, intercediendo por tu familia. Pensamos en ti siempre,
especialmente este Dia de Las Madres.

A ntes que existieramos, ahi estabas tu. De ti originamos y venimos. En ti la semilla de la vida fue plantada, y nacio una
nueva familia. Mira como crecio lo que vino de ti. Por tu cuidado y por tu amor, nadie en esta familia estara solo jamas.
Siempre sabremos que adonde estes, ahi tenemos un hogar.

D e ti aprendi la primera palabra que dije. Estoy seguro que esa palabra fue “MAMA.” Mi primera maestra fuiste tu, y
sigues siendo mi mejor maestra. Siempre sigo aprendiendo de ti.

R econozcamos el trabajo que pasa una madre. Como ama de casa, nos prepara la comida que nos alimenta cada dia.
Muchas madres tambien trabajan, pero siguen asegurandose que la casa este limpia, que todo este bien, y que se coma
bien en casa. Por una mujer trabajadora existo hoy.

E xtraordinaria – esta palabra es tan inadecuada cuando se compara con lo que verdaderamente es una madre. Una madre
es lo mejor que existe en el mundo. Dios creo a la mujer para que el hombre no este solo. Despues mando a su unico
Hijo, y lo hizo por medio de una madre, para darle un hogar propio.

S abes hacer tantas cosas. Sabes quitarnos el dolor. Sabes hacernos reir. Sabes preparar unas comidas deliciosas con los
ingredientes mas simples. Sabes arreglar la ropa para que parezca nueva. Sabes que hacer para que un nino travieso
aprenda y cambie. Y eso no eso todo. Hay tantas cosas que sabes. La sabiduria de una madre es sin igual.

“Della Hoard”

It’s Where the Heart Is….

When I was a child, you tried to help me to succeed in everything I ever wanted to do. Even though I did not get everything I asked for, you gave me some of my wants. More importantly, you supplied all my needs. Each and every day, you would pray that I was okay… in every way. Your prayers for me to be all I could be were seeds planted in thorny ground. Times when I pushed you away, you could still feel my sorrow. Your patience, your encouragement your hope, your lessons… WHY? You knew that there was so much for me to learn and that there was so little time before this life slipped away.

Now that I’m grown, I sometimes feel that I’m on my own. But, I know that I’m never really alone. Regardless of what I’m going through, your love will always be there to comfort me. No matter where I go, or how far I stray, it’s never too far. There was always one place I could be safe… a place in your heart. All I have to do is come back home…

Thanks Moms!

Love Twilight(P.H)

This is the first Mother’s Day poem I’ve ever written to you. I’ve got to tell you daughter, I am so happy I don’t know what to do.
You have made me a grandfather twice over in the blink of an eye. You did it out of love of family ,there can be no other reason why.
I hope you know what you have done is motherly far beyond your years. Every time I think of it, it brings your Pops to tears.
To say “Thank You” or “I Love You,” those words seem so small. I’ll wish you a Happy Mother’s Day that comes from us all.
Pops, Roy! Richard and Andrew.

Your heart was big enough to help make our family complete. Louise and I are so thankful that you saw us as equals when it was time to do what was needed. You have been one of my best friends for most of my life. You have even formed a sister-hood with she who is my wife. Our son is flourishing under the care of you two. I am so thankful I don’t know what to do. I just say Happy Mother’s Day, my respect is great for you. I love you, and thanks for all that you do.
One Love, TWILIGHT (P.H.)


I don’t know if you remember the day your mom introduced you to me. I’ll never forget it. You looked at me in all honesty and said “You got a big head.” Your mama said “Nene!” You looked her right in the eyes and we all laughed. Well, I still got a big head. However, there is something very important I want to say to that little girl I met so long ago. Happy Mother’s Day. Oh yeah, and your brother got a big head too. Love you. TWILIGHT

It seems like a thousand years since we met. Who would have thought that our friendship would have lasted this long, not me but I’m really happy we held on. There has been times I needed you and you have been strong. I’ve never one called you and you didn’t answer the phone even though I was calling from the TWILIGHT ZONE. The way you gathered your sons “MDT”, and held them under your arms. That is the kind of mother stuff that makes you fall short none. Look at the men they have become. They have grown to be the kind of men their grandfather would have them be and he was the kind of man who always had the respect of you. It was their mother who guided them. Taught them to face life trials. You had to travel around the country to bring them together but you were willing to put in the miles. I couldn’t love them more if they were all my own. And I’m sure if I were with them we would all be singing the same song…happy mother’s day Sheri. My dearest friend. A friendship I shall hold close until the very end.

“Emma King”

My real sister, the sister of my heart, the sister that I know was sent to me from GOD. You are special to Louise and I, always in our prayers. We keep you before GOD because we know you want to be there. In times of need you are always there…one of the first to say how much you care. Your four children have all been nurtured and loved. However, its Cameron the 5th child I want to speak of. He was in foster care, a baby left alone no one really knew if he would ever have a home. You picked him up and took him home; but that’s not all with your big heart you have legally made him your own. Emma that’s mother’s stuff extraordinaire. Happy mother’s day from me, Louise, and all the children without a home. We know that it is mother’s like you who will make sure that they are not always alone.

I often seen people who mark they bible as they read the word. However, I rarely seen people who’s bible have marked them. You my sister are marked by GODS word. It is in the light in your eyes, the smile on your face, the sound in your voice. It is in the way you laugh when you are happy, the hugs you give when you greet the people you care about, most of all I see it in the way you have reared JW and AMY to love each other. These things can only be found in a true woman of GOD and a mother. Happy mother’s day from GODS LIGHT and TWILIGHT.


If you are have the mother that you are sister, Rhonda is truly blessed to have you as her mother because as a sister you are the best. I know you are a woman of GOD because of the closeness we share. No matter where Louise and I are your spirit seems to be there. You have a way of watching over us when we need you. You can’t find that type of GODLINESS just anywhere it most often comes with long hours of prayer. When your called to the war room to pray for someone in need your answer is always YES. That’s how I know that in you the father has planted his seed. Happy mother’s day my sister. I pray that this one is the best. Because of your kindness your little brother feels truly blessed.


Ms. Hunt, Louise is always telling me how you are there with a kind word. That does not surprise me because I grew up from child hood to a young man around you and kindness was all I ever heard. I saw you take two families and blend them into one. From Lonnie to Pop (Elroy) they all became one. For a short time while living in the same yard I got to be your son and if I live a hundred years I will never forget that part. I thought I would surprise you on this mother’s day and let you know your other son is not lost it just took some time to find his way. Now that GOD is in his life he is happy every day and he knows that to is because people like you continue to always pray that I would some day be able to find my way. Happy Mother’s Day Ms. Hunt. May GOD pour his blessings on you on this your special day.
GOD’S LIGHT & TWILIGHT( Louise and Prentice)


My son calls coming to worship with you “going to club JESUS” that within itself is a compliment beyond compare. A young man wanting to visit you because he knows he will find the son of GOD there. I have never heard anyone call someone’s home a more special place.
What an environment you have reared your children in, washing feet, praising GOD. Tracy you are a mother who is really dear to my heart. I hope some day to visit “club JESUS” and see for myself this place that is so filled with the spirit that a stranger can be his-self. Happy Mother’s Day my sister. GOD will continue to bless you. I know these are difficult times but you know like I with prayer he will see you through. We who all love you are in the WAR ROOM praying with you.


“Gee Gee”

I’ll never forget when you told me that Aden was on the way, and that I was one of the first to know what a special day. You were going to be a mother, “WOW”, that was exciting to me because I already knew what kind of mother you would surely be.

Happy Mother’s Day Gee. I mean this from my heart. You are a wonderful mother and you have been from the start.

Love: Pops

“Lashon Bridges”
I remember the day I met you; you were sticking out from under a 5 ton truck. I knew my brother had struck gold, he had found a woman who was made out of the same kind of stuff. Then you rolled out with grease and oil on your face. It made no difference, I could see the love on Ather’s face. To him in that moment you were the most beautiful thing in the place. It wasn’t long before you and Ather went away to war and left Chris and Marcus in our care, saying to me here is the most precious people in my life take of them and treat them right. I can’t tell you what it meant to me the level of trust you had shown there.
Happy Mother’s Day Shon and thanks for all you had done. Now your family has really grown and when it comes to mothers you are second to none. One love you brother.
God’s Light and Twilight (Louise and Prentice)

Hello sis. It’s been a while, I think I’ll do what big brothers do. Take a minute on this, your special day and say; Gloria Ann, we love you. Me and your sister too. Mother’s Day is a special day because we men get to say what’s in our hearts. Get it stamped in our book of life and signed off on by God.
Vanity and Jerric (Jerrell) are grown and have gone their own way. That takes nothing away from the fact that you have cared for and protected them until this very day. Louise and I send out love. I personally hope you know why. It’s Mother’s Day and we are family you and I.
Twilight and God’s Light (Prentice and Louise)

“Nikki, Nicole Granger”
I shouldn’t have to tell you, but you have a very special place in my heart. On a night when I would have been heartbroken you stood in my place with the woman most dear to my heart. Baby sisters are special, Nikki, you are one of a kind. I can’t think of anyone I would rather have as my little sister, I’ll love you for all times. I look forward to telling Tommisha, Teresa, Sheneka, Iesha and Jeremy the story of how you won my heart. In these words of encouragement your children too play a part. It is because of them that on Mother’s Day you are shining like a STAR. Happy Mother’s Day from the Hoard family.

Monica & Joyce

It’s said that a woman can’t rear a man; I know better than anyone that is not true. What you and grandma did is my living proof. I’m 6’1″ weighing 300 lbs. My size has absolutely nothing to do with the man I am. It was the two of you who taught me the correct way a man should stand. You taught me about responsibility, to that my children can attest. I’ve worked hard at what I do to give them the very best. I understand that the title “Man” is not a rite of passage when you turn 21. It is the maturity that you show when you move beyond. Who better to teach a man what he should know, than the one who can tell him how to treat the one where his seed shall grow? You even took me in the kitchen and let me stand by your side, taught me how to cook so if need-be, for children I could provide. You two are more than capable of rearing a man. The reason I know is because here I stand. Happy Mother’s Day. I Love You, Mama and Grand-Ma.
Love, Sean


You have done a wonderful job with the children since I’ve been gone. I had no idea when you allowed me into your life that you were so strong. I watched our children under your tutelage, they are bright, intelligent and wise. Amaia at 3 can count to twenty and spell her name, all of which speaks to your claim to fame.

Yes, in my voice what you heard was a father’s pride. Arie at 7 months is special in her own way. She says hi, waves her hand and she understands what it is she is saying. When she says “Da Da” my heart almost leaps from my chest. It’s all because of you Paige and when it comes to mothering, you’re the best. There is no one I would rather be wishing a Happy Mother’s Day too. It is my way of saying how very much I love you.

To: Judy, Tammie, Katie, Norma and Karen


Mother’s Day is around the corner and you are on my mind. Why? Because you are a very special mother; I could even go as far as to say you are one of a kind. I’ve been wondering what I should give you, wondering what I should do. Wondering if I gave all of myself if that would do.

Happy Mother’s Day Kennet and I mean this from my heart. I’ll walk through that door where our lives will never part and it’s Mother’s Day Kennet that I intend to start.

Daniel ‘Poppa Bear loves you.”


I know you won’t believe this but I can remember it to the day in October 2003, when prosperity came into my life. When you came my way my heart stood still for a moment. I could barely breathe. Somehow I new it right then, that you would fulfill my needs.

Eight and 1 half years later, your light would truly shine. You gave me Kinison and she is the light of mine. Yes Erica you are special and dear to my heart. The one that God sent to me because he knew our lives would never part.

Happy Mother’s Day my darling Erica, thank you for standing by me. Thank you for being true to your word. Thank you for loving me, the mother of my daughter. Mother is the most beautiful word I’ve ever heard.

“Aunt Kathy”

I just thought I’d take half a minute to say Happy Mother’s Day to you since Uncle Tommy and I look so much alike. I thought it was the least I could do. I’ve heard wonderful things about the mother that you are and the love you had for your son surely came from heaven above.

All of the beautiful things that you did in memory of Ben’s name, is one of the things that will stand out when the father calls your name. Do you remember that day when we all gathered outside in your back yard and we shared memories of Ben as if we were talking about him to our Father God? That was a story told to me and a memory I will have for a lifetime, of a lady named Aunt Kathy who was so loving and kind.

From Twilight and Amy
