Mother of ten, grandmother of 30, and great grandmother to 18

My mother, Mary Sandherr is 85 years old. She loves big in every way. She gave her life to raise her children. Nine of the ten still live in Pittsburgh.

Mom, you are a shining star! You have given so much of yourself so that we could have the life that we do. You taught us how to love big, take care of each other, and to always treat others the way that we would want to be treated. You and dad celebrated 62 years of marriage. You hold true to your commitments even when most people would have run.

Happy Valentine's Day, Mom

we love you!
