My mother was a 5-foot-2, blue-eyed lady who taught me many things. She taught me everything from “say please and thank you” to “don’t forget to wear your lipstick,” “you better shape up or ship out” and there was always, “get happy just like you got sad.”
Mary Belle loved people and would talk to anyone who would listen. She was a genuine lady and tried her best to teach me how to be a lady. I’m still learning.
