My mother. I had a few people but my mother stands out above all others. She was a mother of ten children and expecting another when the love of her life was taken from her by a fatal heart attack. Only to die and come back two months later from complications of her pregnancy. In spite of all that had been thrown her way she was patient, honest, warm, and loving. She taught us to love everyone unconditionally, or at least she tried.
She struggled to make ends meet and yet managed to keep a roof over our heads and food in our stomachs. Animals and children took to her instantly and adults didn't take long to follow suit. Everyone who knew her in the slightest thought she was wonderful.
I can't really find the words or the way to give her the credit she is due.
