My mother loved my brother and me all of our lives, and she worked all of hers — until the veil of dementia drew over her. 

There is no way that I can express her love and her unceasing care for my brother and me. So too, I cannot express my love and my debt to her.

Thank you, Mama

I would like to extend my many thanks to all you who have
expressed your condolences, and particularly for all of your
kind words in remembering my mother.
