Pillows, ceramic figures, colored glass, etc. She was my hero! (smile) My mother loved her children, she wanted the very best for us and was willing to do whatever necessary to have that happen. I have such precious memories; her bringing me for lunch at school, a warm hot dog and a hard boil egg minus the yolk,  becaus
