Dear Mom,

One of our Core Values is Be Thankful and we all know how important a mother can be in our lives. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we reached out to some of our employees to get a quick thought about their mothers. Check it out, we call this segment Dear Mom:


Dear Mom,

Thank you for being my biggest fan. Because of you, I am becoming the man who you raised me to be. No matter what, I know I can count on you to be there. That's the best feeling in the world.

-Greg  M. 


Dear Mom,

Thank you for being my number one fan and for being the strongest person that I know!  Witnessing your strength, faith, and perseverance to overcome any obstacle that has ever stood in your way has never ceased to amaze me. Also, thank you for leading me in the right direction at a young age. It is because of you that I am able to make a living working in a field that I love. If it weren't for you networking for me while I was in high school to get a job with the Mizzou football team during college, I would have never made the connections that I've made since. You always put yourself last and for all of the aforementioned things I am forever grateful! Happy Mother's Day.

-Austin H. 


Dear Mom,

Thank you for never missing a single game I played in growing up, and there were a lot. A few years ago I learned to stop telling you when my KC Corporate Challenge events were anymore because you even showed up to one of those once! I think I was the only one with their mom watching them long jump at the KC Corporate Challenge! I have never seen anyone put other people first as much as you. It’s an unbelievable trait that I am fortunate to have been exposed to growing up. Working at a company that believes in that same value has made me appreciate you teaching me that even more. You’re as resilient as they come and we are proud to call you our mother and grandmother! You the Real MVP!

-Andrew D. 


Dear Mom,

Thank you for always being there for me no matter what. You have always been someone I can count on. I can't imagine being the person I am today without your love and support. Thank you so much! 

-Brett O. 


Dear Mom, 

It's impossible to put into words everything that I appreciate about you. Thank you for being there on the sidelines cheering me on in everything that I do. It doesn't go unrecognized, that you are and will continue to be my #1 fan.

-Cole S. 


Dear Mom,

Thanks for being the most selfless person I’ve ever met.  I’m truly grateful for the 15 years you spent shuttling me from game to game and practice to practice.  And you were always the loudest one there!  Thanks for being a great mom!

-Ryan W. 


Dear Mom,

Having a mother and friend like you while growing up is the greatest blessing I could have and I can’t thank you enough for shaping me into the person I am today. Thank you for the countless hugs, time spent raising our family, thank you for your laughter, for showing and spreading love to everyone around us, for the three hour traffic driving to practices every day five times a week by my side, and for even making me jealous when everyone in the team (volleyball) called you mom too because they loved you so much! Thank you for your support on the sidelines, and for teaching me to stay strong and sharp even when I am no longer walking on your side. So, here is to be raised by a strong woman that taught me and teach many others to be one and to raise one. Dear mom, I love you so much!

-Wanessa S. 


Dear Mom,

Thank you for all the life lessons you have taught me and always putting our needs before yours.  Thank you for “three/four” every weekend.  “Mema Judi” thanks for always making time to hang with our kids.  Thank you for taking a chance and starting Pro Athlete; that has changed so many lives.  You are such an awesome Mom, keep up the great work!  I love you and thank you for loving me the way you do.

-Scott H. 


Dear Mom,

Not a day goes by when I don't think of you and your amazing smile and energy for life. Even though our family has spent the last 10 Mother's Days without you, I love this great holiday because it reminds us of you and all of the great years you blessed us with. Love Always, your son.

-Chad M. 


Dear Mom,

Thank you for always being my biggest supporter through the good times and the bad. You have always been there for me and I appreciate everything. There's no words that can describe how amazing you have been to me. Thank you for everything!

-John G.
