She was one of the last of The Greats.
She was my mother, my mentor, my best friend.
She died in peace and in a state of grace.
There not a morning I will not have to remeber mom is gone.
She had infinite patience with me.
And I am a better person for it.
The Miss Betty has sailed to new frontiers, to New Worlds yet undiscovered.
I miss her not as a mother but as my best friend.
