What do you think? What’s the best memory of your mom?

By From page A11 | May 12, 2013

Keevan McGarvey-Tanenbaum

student, Davis:

“We were out in Reno, for kart racing, and we had a blast with a bunch of friends who also raced. That was in 2010.”

Maria Elena Rodriguez

housewife, Pinole:

“When she cooks for me.”

Sabra Hillis

retired, Davis:

“My mother would always come in to wake us up in the morning, and she would kiss us. That’s always stuck with me. She always worked, in a time when most women worked, because it was the Depression. She would get us all up in the morning, kiss us awake, make lunches for the five of us and get to her job by 8 o’clock. She was amazing.”

Laura Mooney

student, Davis:

“When my dad came home from a year on a submarine, we were both waiting for him on the pier, and we both ran to him at the same and welcomed him home. That was when I was 9. (That’s my best memory) because my dad would be away for months at a time, but this time we lived in Guam, on an island, and we lived alone without him, and it was a really good moment after a year.”

Julian Merino

student, Davis:

“She took me Christmas shopping to buy toys. Just my mom making me happy.”

Roberto Loaiza

researcher, Roseville:

“She would always make a dozen sandwiches, and they’d be stacked like a pyramid.  And after school, every time we’d open the fridge, there’d always be sandwiches for me to eat.”
