Submitted by Jeannie T. about her mother Frances B.

"Mother is 97 and exceptional in every way. Resilient and without fear she has walked through life with honor, dignity and grace. As my hero, she taught me to speak the truth, be strong, and love with all my heart. Once a military wife raising children around the world through two wars, a painter, an author of history, a student of nutrition and health and a mother with a heart of gold. I am who I am as a teacher and human being, because of her support and love. She has been my greatest love and gift in life."
