Amelia Gallagher, what a wonderful woman....
There has been so much talk about googling your name and making sure what is there is correct, etc. That got me thinking and I googled my Mother’s name and....nothing. In the future is that how we are going to be remembered by what some can find on the Internet about us, good or bad?
I am entering into account a snippet of information about the greatest woman in my life..my Mother, Amelia Gallagher.
Amelia was born on April the 6th 1932 to Willie & Gladys in Robeson county NC. She was given no middle name. She grew up on a tobacco field and spent time working it to help with the family...
She was married to Paul J. Gallagher. They met while Paul patrolled the streets of downtown Fayetteville as a military policeman, she was a waitress at a bar. Ah the good old days...the military police had jurisdiction over the soldiers outside the gates of Ft Bragg and they had to toe the line!
They fell in love got married, Paul left the military to move back home to Ohio to become a State Highway Patrolman. So they began their life together....
Amelia Gallagher had four children Rudy, Brenda, Paul & Melissa. Cant speak for the rest but she was the most important woman in my world and always would be! She was a stay at home Mom and was always there when the children returned from school.
She was always willing to give of herself...give the shirt off her back if she thought you needed it more than her!
She was my Mother, my friend, my confidant, my phone buddy, my everything..... Even though we lived in the same town and I saw her all the time, we talked on the phone sometimes ten times a day...I didn't have enough time.
Amelia Gallagher left this world on March 26th 2009...the saddest day of my life.
