  1. I can only imagine how tough it was for you to lose your mom so early.

  2. You lost your mom at a very young age. I don't think they teach driver's ed in school anymore, at least, not around here. But I had it in school as well.

  3. I worked on the yearbook, too, but I'm so old that we were the "annual staff." We have losing our moms when we were young in common. It is not a "club" I would wish on anyone.

  4. I loved TV game shows, too. I was so excited to see that Password is being rebooted. That was my favorite.
