I think my best Friend Kim Oder deserves to win. She is a single mother of 4 great kids. She is a very active mom she is either at a t-ball game for her son or a soccer game for her oldest daughter. She has had a hard time the last few years but has always made it through. She is the kind of friend that if you need anything than she is there to help you out, and never asks for anything in return. She never gets to have anytime for herself because she is more worried about her kids.

My mom is amazing. She has had a really rough year. She lost her Brother to cancer a few weeks ago and has been taking care of her sick father and getting her mother situated and moved back to Laramie. Many years now she has been a great asset to the community and a mother to her employees and a great friend to all that need her as well. In spite of all of this she has managed to be an amazing mother and here for all four of her children and her two grandchildren! I couldn’t ask for a better mom.

A mother of a 4 month old and an almost three year old, Heather Has a more than full time job of which she commutes to Cheyenne five times a week. With my full time job she also takes our children with her to work. She is a Case Manager for Developmental Disabilities and her love for people is never ending. Hard work and taking care of our two boys and never complaining is why i am nominating my beautiful wife Heather.

Karen Lundahl is not only a wonderful Mother to her children but all children. She has been a foster parent for 19 years and has adopted 11children. Karen has been a personal friend of mine for several years and when I was in need of daycare, she helped me out and many other families out (especially families with shift/busy schedules). Karen works really hard and always puts others first. I think Karen needs to be rewarded/pampered for being an amazing person and Mom to so many!
