My mother, my Mom is a caring soul. Throughout her life she could be heard asking, "Is there anything I can do?" And as time went on, and she became less mobile, she would insist that we give her a kiss whenever we walked past her chair. Those kisses would often turn into smiles and giggles. Mom would make sure when we left the house, she would tell my brothers, and I, and her grandchildren, "I love you." I know my mother, my Mom will always be in our hearts.
