Mother's Day 2009

Super Sweet Mom of Eight

My precious mother is a mom to eight(yes, biological)children, four boys and four girls!Carmen Lampley lives in Benton, IL. She turned 78 years young last week! She is the family anchor and is our rock. Carmen continues to stay present in all of her children's,grandchildren's and great-children's lives and is a grandmother to the preschool children she teaches at church, a few times a week! She is a real go-getter, loves to dance and has spunk! My mother has helped me through every aspect of my life-from the joyous time of giving birth to my own daughter (which I named after mom)until now: helping me survive breast cancer. A few weeks ago,I had breast reconstruction surgery and at the same time, she was at the doctor fighting life-threatening health issues of her own. Mom cannot be physcially with me each day as she would like, but I know she is with me in spirit and is always a phone call away. She has strength beyond belief and she relies heavily in her faith. Mom is cheering me on when she is also fighting for her life. Mom tells me we will both pull through these hard times, and I believe her. She tells me the Lord is not through with her yet,and I believe her. She has so much to offer! My mother is wonderful to all that know her. Carmen Lampley deserves to win the Mother's Day Contest. I love you, Mom. Signed, Your Middle Child XXXOOO

My grandmother means the world to me. She's strong, sweet, courgeous, fun to be around, very loving, and much more! She always has great advice about life and other things that we never forget. Grandma Carmen is the best! Love ya Mawmaw :)

Many things can be added to what has been said above, but I'm just glad to be called her sister-in-law. Carmen has been a stable force in many lives, one of them, my late brother...Kenneth, taking care of him until the end. Thanks Carmen. Love you
