For the many mothers in our city and county who raise their children and work hard to teach them positive lifestyle choices, I thank you for your hard work and the things you do that go unnoticed. Being there for them while they grow up is something we all take for granted that mothers just do, but I know better. A mother's work is never done.
I am raising six kids who were abandoned by their mother. They are my grandkids. -- Barbara Russell Irons, Stockton
