This is my mom. She was a cool chick.  She was smart, open, kind, witty and creative. She could always see the humor in all things. Each year around the first of May, she would tell us kids that if we did not appreciate her all year that we should not try to make up for it in one day. She’s gone, but I will shout it out to the universe anyway for her to hear,  Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
