    When I think of my mother, I remember how strong she was, both physically and mentally. She raised an autistic daughter, my sister, in an era that did not have nearly as many resources as mothers do now. I remember how my mother struggled with my sister as they both got older. Now that our mother is gone, I am now my sister’s guardian.
