In 1966, standing on the lawn at 116 Forest in Park Forest, Illinois, my Mother told her children of her new job at Illinois Bell Telephone, and while it didn't pay alot, we would make it together. Mom had brought us to this town as a single parent. She wanted us to have the opportunity to be raised in a diverse and progressive environment. Mom had many struggles over the years, but her hopes and dreams for her children were fulfilled before she passed. The many lives Mom touched with love, concern and care will honor her each and every time they treat others the same way.
