I wrote the following poem, To Mother, for my mom's birthday in 1972. I'm still madly in love with this precious person.

You're understanding, sweet and always there,
You've managed a home and a job just as well,
And there's so much about you to tell.
Mom you're the greatest and I'll always love you.
(written July 10, 1972)
My mother has cried with me and laughed with me. She has worried over me and encouraged me. She is a wonderful grandmother over her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren. She is a woman to emulate. How blessed I am to have this woman in my life to call Mom.
Happy Mother's Day!
