This is my mom:
I love you, mom.
My first friend.
My first teacher.

Thank you to a mom who knows so skillfully when to back off and let me learn my own lessons, and when to rush in to my aid.

I'm glad you're on the planet.

Thanks for being mom in 2002, every year since 1975, and hopefully more years to come than I can count on all my fingers and toes.

Love, your son Daniel David Talsky.
