      A mother's love for her children should be unconditional, it's unfortunate that it's not the case for a lot of people. When my mom was admitted to a rehab facility for a short time by her doctors reccomendation I was there with my sister when a social worker came in to interview her so they could evaluate her, my mother always put me and my two sisters first before herself, she was the most unselfish woman I have ever known, she told the social worker that her children were her life and how proud she was of us, I lived with her and took cars of her until she passed away at 92, she was a nurse and my two sisters became nurses, she was also an army veteran having joined right out of nursing school during ww2, she was stationed in Alabama at an army hospital. We were proud of her too.

    Sometimes I just get floored by the fact that a little family in rural Utah can consistantly put out top tier quality entertainment that is more capable of engaging me emotionally and intellectually than literally anything being produced in mainstream media. You guys are a force of nature! I feel like if I met any one of you on the street it would be like meeting an old friend. I found myself incapable of wiping the smile off my face as soon as I saw what you were going to do today! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this. I think I speak for all of us here when I say, you are like family to us and it's our privilege to be offered a chance to come to know you.

    That’s such a great gift for Brother Ben. I’m sure he appreciates the Jeep and the love. But I think Ben has an emotional attachment to his old Jeep. He drove it for years. I’m the same way about some of the vehicles I have owned. The old Jeep is like an old friend. It’s hard to say goodbye. I think deep down he hoped it could be saved. Ben is a good man.

    Y’all are blessed to have such a loving family.
    Gotta say I’m jealous, not just of the Jeep but the family bond and you folks have❤

    Mom did a great job raising her sons, and a pretty darn good job of making my eyes water too. She is a gem. Take good care of her.
