“Being sick and her coming in my room to lay by me and comfort me.”
Jensen’s Gigi  

“When she held me while I cried over the death of my granddaughter. I felt safe.”
Vicki Bell

“Her reading stories to my sister and me long past childhood. She read The Good Earth to us when we were teens. I love reading, because of my mother, and so do my daughters.”
GiGi Hall Rivera

“She made Christmas magical. 6 kids was a lot to buy for and she got each of us something we liked. Also let me wrap the others’ gifts while she worked on the dinner preparations. I never did figure out where she hid mine. (Smart lady knew I would peek) Gosh, I miss that dear woman.”  
Jill Hare

“When she was out in the yard gardening.”

    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.
