Being A "Moore Girl" . . .

When you come from a large family it is easy to get a reputation. The Moore girl reputation was one to be proud of as our parents taught us many things and among them was to be hard working, dependable, and service oriented. My older sisters helped pave the way as they exercise these characteristics and so many more. Being the youngest I feel it has been easy for me to be blended into both generations of our family. Ruth Ann, Diane and Della have been so great to come to my aid whenever needed and stepped into "Mother" roles. They have given my children their first baths since Mom was needed taking care of Dad. I've watched my neices play with and care for my children when they were teenagers, and now they are all amazing young women and mothers. Although we all now have different last names I still take pride in knowing I'm a "Moore Girl" and that is something that will forever pull us all together. I wish this picture had all of us Moore Girls but we know how difficult it is to get us all in the same place. We hope knowing that you were missed helps if just a little.


Thanks Mom and Dad for having 8 great kids -- I love my family!
