“Mother/Nana, someday I hope I’m able to say I’ve done as much as you and with as much energy, too. I want to say I’ve led a good life, made the right choices, and put family and friends first-like you have. I want to say that people enjoyed and trusted me the way they do you. Someday I hope to be paid the highest compliment I can think of…You’re just like your Mother/Nana.”
