    I have fond memories of mom taking me to places that at the time, I didn't know would mean so much to me later in life. Memories such as going to a donut shop before school, getting a banana split sometimes, and eating at McDonalds. She took me to see my first movie inside a theater, A Star Is Born. It's the little things like that that stand out to me. I will remember how pretty and intelligent she was, and she always hold a special place in my heart. The circle of life continues.
