“I love my mother so very much because she is truly the ultimate in being non-judgmental, loving, enthusiastic, outgoing, positive, generous, appreciative, considerate and friendly. I wish I had a nickel for every time someone has told me how much they love my mother. She always sees the positive in everything and everybody. She makes everyone feel like they are the most important person on the planet. I don’t know how she could be any better or more lovable.”
