"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.’”
