To the editor:
LOVE - Loads of Valuable Emotions is a good worldly explanation.
Growing up, my mother gave me lots of love. She sewed me little stuffed animals. She also put me on her lap and read to me a lot. She baked cookies, pies, cakes and bread. At Christmas time she always ordered me a new coat, cap and overshoes for winter and would put up a Christmas tree.
When I was 6 years old my mom became stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease and died when I was 8. I have missed her motherly love ever since.
My sister and I were taken in and raised by my dad's brother after my dad took his own life. We were lucky to have this happen to us. We grew up on the farm and worked hard all day. They gave us lots of good love and care.
Thanks to their good example and caring love I have tried to raise my family by giving them love on a daily basis.
My love has grown stronger even though my son and daughter live in the Los Angeles area of California.
My daughter has always been a kind and loving person to others. My son had some problems growing up but three years ago he gave his life to the Lord. I have a 7-year-old grandson whom I greatly love. Folks best of all "God is Love."
Let us all show love toward others. Amen.
