“You know, mothers are suppose to be loving, nurturing, and full of compassion – especially to their own children. I had a wonderful relationship with my mother. She was warm, generous, lovingly approachable, and to this day I can imagine her sweet humming throughout the house as she folded clothes or prepared a meal.

But for the most part – the part that has left a remarkable impression upon my childhood and adulthood – she was, for me, the best.
