It is said that daughters are attached to their fathers, and sons are attached to their mothers. Of course, it might as easily be said that fathers have a special attachment to their daughters, and mothers have a special attachment to their sons. Either way, it is assumed throughout human history there is something unique about the mother-son relationship.
In Remembering Catherine, author Reginald Audrick tells of the special relationship he had with his mother, Catherine, who died at age ninety-six. In this memoir, he pays tribute to the 100-pound, feisty, persistent, and beloved woman who as a single parent played a very instrumental part in his over sixty years of life.
Audrick introduces Catherine to the world sharing not only this beloved woman’s personal struggles and disappointments but more importantly how she was able to set aside these difficulties to promote his good and future success; for which he will be forever grateful.
