We are who we are because of the ones who have loved us, and because of those we have loved. Our mother had a great capacity to love and a giving heart. She remained eager to experience new things until the end of her days. She had many gifts, and they were dispersed generously amongst her children and all those for whom she cared. They will remain with us for all our lives.
