Mother’s Day means different things to different people, and a few central Kenai Peninsula residents were open to sharing what they love, remember or admire best about their moms.

“She always helps me. She puts my trampoline together. She cleans my room and goes with me to find stuff (exploring his dad said). She’s special,” said Bridger Cox of Kenai.

Carlee Sounart and her sister, Ronni, were in agreement as to what they like best about their mom.

“She always gets along with all my friends,” Carlee said.

“Yeah, she’s cool,” added Ronni.


Steve Richard

Steve Richard, of Kenai, was more introspective about the meaning of motherhood. Of his mom he said, “She was a very loving and giving person, who put everyone ahead of herself. She loved the Lord and tried to teach the family about Jesus. I wish she was still here.”

Michael Snyder, of Kenai, said mothers do so much it’s hard to capture it in just a few sentences.

“It’s always hard to define a mom. Sometimes you take them for granted, but where would we be without them?” he said.

As to his own mom, Snyder said what he loves is, “She’s always there for us. She’s fun with a great sense of humor. She’s great at keeping secrets and she always buys the best gifts.”

Savannah Bilyeu of Nikiski also found it difficult to encapsulate all her mother represented.

“There’s a lot of stuff I love. She’s nice. She cares about me and makes me happy,” she said.
