My mother, a widow with little education, told me how meager her Christmases had been in a family of 12 children. According to her, she was lucky to get an apple or an orange, a finger-sized doll and a stick of candy. My brother and I, on the other hand, usually got much more. I remember quite clearly that Santa never got the idea right that I despised dolls, so I received one every year. Contrary to the dolls of ...

She was unprotected from pain-both hers and the pain of those she deeply loved. She lived true to herself-without pretense or deceit. Her family was her constant concern-her sister Harriet, her brothers Thad and Charlie, and her two generations of nephews and ...
