My Dear Mother
She passed away at the age of 44 leaving 11 children,
most of whom were still in their elementary and teen years.
The adult children helped raise their younger siblings.

Words to the poem
Mother, Dear Mother, When I think of you,
I want to be all that is fine, That is true.
All that is worthy, Noble or grand,
Has come from you Mother, From your guiding hand.
