"My mother had Parkinson’s disease so she came to live with me and my daughter Lindsay for four wonderful years. Lindsay was just starting high school but was a tremendous help since my mother required 24-hour care. My oldest daughter, Stephanie, cared for mom while I worked. Both girls became extremely close to her. When mom passed away in December 2006, it was really hard on all of us. My mother was a very special lady and loved by everyone.
