    My Mom passed away 3 years ago about 2 weeks before her 93rd Birthday. She was well and living on her own for 92 of those years. She was a wonderful mother to us children and an amazing and courageous woman. I am just now going through her things. My grandaughter needed an artifact of someone in her family for a class project. I did come upon a clipping from the newspaper noting her award for achieving the highest marks in wireless school for all of Canada. my mom is on the left

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
