My mother, Lillian Wolfe, is long gone, but her advice, warnings and general ‘Lili-isms’ live on in my daily life.  She taught me to fight the good fight, to write letters to City Hall when I was pissed and she also gave me my moral compass (one glance from Lillian told me instantly whether my behavior was acceptable or not – and I got a lot of glances).  My sister Terry and I remember many childhood events differently but we both agree that our mother was a  pistol. Here’s to Lillian Wolfe and all of the other mothers, caregivers, nurturers, pamperers, surrogates and loving coddlers out there.  You make it all work. And a huge salute to all of the Zoo mothers in today’s photo montage.
