    "A son did a mother very proud in writing this!!"

    I think a mother made a son who anyone could be proud of.

    To the credit of both of them, I think Jimmer turned out to be the man his mom raised him to be. Everyone who interacts with Jimmer the person, not just Jimmer the legend, NBA teammates, college teammates, media, speaks very highly of Jimmer the person.

    Great mom, dad, brother and sister. Great family. Is Jimmer this good as a writer? Very clean and nice flow. C'mon he has an editor, right?

    Jimmer and family might be the nicest people on earth.

    I love your tribute to a fine christian mother. Your example to the youth of the Church has been truly admired. Please keep up the good work. Your greatest test now may be wealth. Use it to do good and send lots of missionaries on their way.

    if I remeber that his mom let him bounce basketball in her house. No wonder he has great balance with basketballs. Great story to read. Thanks Jimmer!

    What an amazing woman & fascinating family. Not a perfect family, and far from it as we all are, but still amazed at this family based on all the publicity about Jimmer. A son did a mother very proud in writing this!!
