"I’m still struggling with her death. She was my best friend and biggest fan.""What’s your happiest memory of her?""When I graduated from high school, I had to either sing a song or recite a poem. I sang a song that she’d taught me, and she was in the front row, clapping louder than everyone.""Do you remember the song?"“‘I never can forget the day,I heard my mother kindly say,You’re leaving now my tender care;Remember, child, your mother’s prayer.’”

Remember, child, your mother’s prayer.’”
