I only knew her later in life but I was amazed how she loved everyone at least when I was around. She was very tolerant of her daughter Jeannie. Only a mother could be like that. Considering her husband's illness while her children were growing up makes it seem like a miracle that she was able to keep the family together and have three good daughters. Only a good mother could have done. It kind of reminds me of my mother. I was the youngest of three children when my father died. I was three when he died but she was able to keep the family together.
