A Real Mother

Thanks to the murderous ministrations of Vanderbilt Medical Center, only one of my parents will (Lord-willing) be around for my wedding, that being my mother, to whom I owe so much. I am not a greeting card person as I like to compose my own thoughts and express them. Whatever kindness and compassion there is in me stems largely from Mom. My mother is the only person in my near half century to always put my needs first. Mom went without so I could have and she did it cheerfully without ever calling attention to her sacrifice on my or my late father's behalf. If you know her, you know she is the least self-aggrandizing person you have met and among the most giving. There is no sufficient way to express the gratitude I have for you Mom.
