There was a memorial service for my mother today in Kingston.
We remember your example of stoicism, mom. You did not complain, ever, about your physical pain.
We remember your strength of spirit, and we still speak with admiration about the fierce sense of social justice you had.
We remain inspired by your life long quest to keep learning new things.
We recall how you never gave up on encouraging each of us to follow our dreams.
We know that you always wanted the very very best for your children.
We miss your large presence.
