Lasting Memories from One Mother's Love, January 31, 2009, By John Voso, Jr. I read My Mother, My Angel at 2:30 AM this past Wednesday during a snow storm. I finished it in one sitting at 4:00 AM. The book brought me to memories of both my Mother and Father. I recalled a lot of great times we spent together. Jane's book made me happy and sad. That is what I feel makes a book a great read. That feeling of many emotions as you turn pages and dig deeper into the story.
As Jane recounts her calling Hospice and having Mom put into full care brought back memories of our Father's battle with dementia and alzheimers and his eventual admittance into a nursing facility. Not an easy moment in anyone child's life.
Crying is a good thing, it humbles your soul. It also reflects that one cares. Caring is not taught in books, you have it or you don't. In this book you can feel the struggle of letting go and also the joy of the family picking up and carrying on. It was very nice to see that the "Girl's Weekend" and "The Showers" survived and will continue over the years. That is awesome!
Read My Mother, My Angel and enjoy Jane's story and appreciate the love she had from her Mother and Father and the love she gave in return. I will be sure to pass my copy along as well as share the title with friends and family.
An Inspiring Story of a Motherís Love, January 26, 2009, ByKelly L.

She had five successful children. She was a loving wife who adored her husband. She was a breast cancer survivor.
