Memorial
This site is dedicated to the memory of my mother Theresa Cowan-Ybanez. Instead of marking the date of her death, I'm hoping to now honor the day of her birth. She would have wanted it that way. She would have preferred a party to a wake, a celebration to a funeral. For those left behind, that is a tough order to follow, but we'll try just the same.

To know my mom was to love her; her tenacity, her wit and her fierce loyalty to her family. So to my mother and to my friend that I miss so dearly: Happy Birthday Mom!

Miss you Mom! Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Today I celebrate you and all that you mean to us. Love you. xox

Aunt Terry was more than an aunt to me, she was an extension of my parents. No matter how my life was going, she provide a sanctuary for me always lending an understanding ear and opening her home to me and my daughter. My times with her and my Uncle Louis will always be cherished and close to my heart. Happy Birthday Auntie Terry, I miss you dearly and want to thank you again and again for all you've done for me.

This is just lovely, Valarie. Brings back so many memories of spending time with your family and your beautiful Mom – late nights after football games and Christmas parties and how wonderful she always was with us.
Just seeing her face on the screen makes me smile! xoxo

By yon bonnie banks,
And by yon bonnie braes,
Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond,
Where me and my true love
Were ever want to gae,
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

Oh! ye'll take the high road and
I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
But me and my true love
Will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

'Twas then that we parted
In yon shady glen,
On the steep, steep side of Ben Lomond,
Where in purple hue
The Highland hills we view,
And the moon coming out in the gloaming.

Oh! ye'll take the high road and
I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
But me and my true love
Will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.

The wee birdie sang
And the wild flowers spring,
And in sunshine the waters are sleeping,
But the broken heart it kens
Nae second Spring again,
Tho' the waeful may cease frae their greeting.

Oh! ye'll take the high road and
I'll take the low road,
And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;
But me and my true love
Will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
