Today my mother would have been 87. Sadly she died in 1999 of complications following surgery for a blockage of the small intestine. She was not the easiest person in the world to get along with, having a fiery temper and a very strong will, but she was fiercely protective of my brother and I and did her best to raise us in what she considered to be a proper manner. She did not have an easy life, her marriage was difficult from the start, but she once told us that my father was the only man she'd ever truly loved.
It's a shame that it could not have been what she hoped it would be.
