    This article is so special, get out the Kleenex. I am a mother myself and have been blessed with a great posterity of 5 children, and grandkids, However, Mother's day always reminds me of my Angel Mother. She joined our Heavenly Father when she was only 58 years old, but oh the things she taught me when she was with us physically.

    I think of her saying "Remember who you are" when we left the house. Cutting a dress pattern our of a brown paper bag and making a dress for one of us on a treadle sewing machine, many hours playing paper dolls under a quilt that she was quilting along with her sister. A woman who was the Relief Society President but didn't drive a car. Who served a mission when most people would have said their health and age would make it impossible to serve. Her advise that Temple marriage was a must, and traveled by Horse and Buggy from Enterprise, to St George Utah in September 1914 to be married in the temple. What an example. All of her daughters have been married in the temple. Yes she was and is my Angel Mother.
