was the oldest of four sisters. Sadly she became
ill and died a month before her 77th birthday.
I will always regret that she didn't have
a longer life. I miss her.
She encouraged me to study hard in school,
impressed upon me her political beliefs,
and taught me to love and respect
people of all races and religions.
by exposing me to the television shows of comedy
legends like Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Steve Allen,
Jack Parr and Johnny Carson. I enjoyed making
her laugh by reciting jokes and acting out funny
sketches I saw on TV. To sum it up, my mother
helped shape me into the person I am today.
a particular song also comes to mind, the Lulu hit
"To Sir With Love." I changed some of the words
to make it fit. Please start the tune playing on low
volume as background music, then scroll down
to read my birthday message to mom.
If she wanted the sky
I would write across the sky in letters
she let me give my heart
