"My fondest springtime memory... the litter of three baby rabbits you saved from a scavenging crow. I remember their middle-of-the-night formula feedings from an eye-dropper, and later, a tiny bottle. When the bunnies graduated to pellet food, lettuce, carrot, and hand-picked clover, we knew they would live. I'll never forget your dedication to those defenseless, little creatures and determination to keep them alive. Releasing these gorgeous animals back to the wild once they had grown to independence was sad, but perfectly natural. Happy Mother's Day."

"I treasure my childhood memories of the holiday season... baking cookies, wrapping presents, and playing with toys that Santa placed under a tree I helped decorate when we spent Christmas Eve at home, along with the excitement of enjoying time with family in central Wisconsin. These warm traditions will stay in my mind forever."
