I'm not quite sure what this "mamma's boy" is going to do without you mom, but if I keep everything neat and clean I guess things will work out. You always supported me without question, and praised me when it wasn't deserved. In 1969, when I was 3, you went to a Red Sox game. I cried on the back porch because I thought you were never coming back. Thank you for coming home that day and staying for the next 48 years. I will miss you forever.
