This was my beloved mother and I wanted to update her in Poet history as she was a proud Poet! She was a wonderful mother, an astute businesswoman who went on to own her own business after we were older, a woman of deep faith and loved sewing, reading and creating a wonderful home for our family. Throughout her life, we lived many places but she always considered Montgomery "home base" and we got back as often as we could. Near the end of her life, she was able to move back home to Montgomery.
