Today would have been my mother's 73rd birthday. This post is in remembrance of her. She passed away on January 2, 2003 from small cell carcinoma of the left lung which spread to her liver.
My mother was the best mother any child could ever have, if you don't believe me, just ask one of my three brothers. She had the knack, and not all mother's have this knack, of making you feel like you were an only child.
She gave all of herself to make you feel like you were the most special person in the whole wide world, but then she could turn around and make the person standing just next to you feel that same way.
She was near and dear to me and I miss her tremendously each and every day, but especially on her special day.
