It’s quite a challenge just to list three things. So many things could be listed, from her fried chicken, tuna sandwiches, and tacos, to her love of travel.

Tolerance, strength beyond belief, and a never “give up” attitude. Mother had a very tough life as a child and she has used this, in a positive way, to get the through some tough times. Also my Dad, a World War II victim…mental problem from the effects of Normandy D-Day, put her though Hell….but, she survived and became very successful, with limited education. A good business woman and “tough as a two-dollar steak”.

College campus (she was a professor), classical music and her love for my Meg (she was the only family member who accepted her).

My Mom could cook! And I always watched or participated with her. She smoked like a steam engine and it eventually killed her. Strength, my Mom put up with an abusive husband, divorced him to raise 4 kids and work 2 jobs, remarried to an adulterous asshole, became friends with the woman he cheated on her with…there is so much that she went through. She’s my hero/icon and I miss her everyday!

@janbb Mother had some narcissitic chararateristics also. Funny story, but not funny. In 2006, had my left hip replaced…and that is major surgery. My pastor drove to Memphis to pray with me before surgery. Mother was in Tunica playing the slot machines!
