Her name was Mary MacLeod. She came from Scotland, and she met my father when she was very young.
They were married for many, many years. I learned so much from my mother.
She was just incredible, warm, loving, really smart.
Could be tough if she had to be, but basically, she was a really nice person.
So much of what I've done and so much of what I've become is because of my mother. I miss her a lot.
So, I say this to you as I think about my mother: Happy Mother's Day and God bless the United States of America.
