Happy Mother's Day

I've been lucky to have a great Mom! Here she is with Dad at a family wedding a few years ago.

I've always been grateful that Mom (and Dad) brought me up to love other people, not hate. One of my earliest memories is of a time when they protested Jim Crow laws, detailed here. Mom was also supportive when I wanted to join the police department in the late 70's. She was worried about my safety, and I know she was relieved when I retired, but she still supported me.

Mom was the second female real estate broker in the state of Texas, back when men were real estate agents. (Today most agents are women.) She taught me that women could be anything they wanted and that they could be successful in business.

Love you Mom!
