12. Happy birthday to my Mom, Marilu Eder, who would cart my 3 sisters and brother to my track meets, among the many beautiful things she did in my life. I miss her every day. If your Mom is still alive, call her and tell her that you love her and appreciate her. She will love it. I wish I could make one more phone call to my Mom.
