The Times of Your Life

This book is a tribute to my mother, Alice White Bigelow, whose love we all felt in the Bigelow family.  Welby and David, my older brothers, shared in the love we felt for Mother.  This book needed to be written because Mother did so much for us, and gave us so much of her life, her time, and her love, that now we need to repay her in our words, and in our tributes to her.  There were so many facets of Mother’s life and personality, it is impossible to cover all of them in one book, but hopefully we can do our very best!

In the pages that follow, you will read more of the life and times of this wonderful mother, wife, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother.  She lived to touch the hearts of friends and family, and through her example and personality, she influenced more people than we will ever know!  She brought into this world three sons, raised them, taught them, and loved them.  She was a good wife to our father Welby Sr.  She was a teacher, secretary, a leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a business person, a grandmother to twelve grandchildren, and a great-grandmother to 39 children.  She loved every one of those children, and even when she was struggling late in life with miserable strokes she tried her best to see that every one of those kids got a Christmas gift from her!!
