My mother was so caring and loving to everyone. She would be dead straight honest with family and friends. Not one person knows besides family how much she suffered in life. But she never complained. Her parents left her in Queens NY when she was 5 years old with her sisters who were 6 and 7 years old. She waited every day for two years waiting for a card or letter from either parent. She was raised by 3 aunts and 2 uncles. She never received a birthday card or letter from either parent. She married her High School sweat heart my father and had 3 boys in the Hornell/ Endicott area. She had breast cancer at age 30 and lost one of her breasts. She never received support from the Cancer Society. She had radiology and it effected her heart. She had heart problems since she was in her late 40's. Then she had severe back pain the rest of her life. But she never complained. She had my brother George in her early 40's. After breast cancer she never thought she could have another child. George was a true miracle. She suffered her entire life but never complained. She continued to love even though she suffered so much. My mom like my late brother Mike always loved. Love is what we should do. Love all your neighbors and strangers. She loved Black, White, Asian,Latino, and especially the most poor people in our country....Native Americans. Hate will always loose to love.
