Shari Roberts's favorite memory is of her mother reading to her at night before she fell asleep.

"I love to get messages from my step daughters and my grandchildren on Mother's Day. They always tell me how much they love me and I save all of them on my phone so I can listen to them over and over," she said.  

As for choosing one special Mother's Day memory, Peggy Jones said all her Mother's Day memories of her mom are special. "She is 95 years young and that is special," she said.

Michele Silberman's favorite memory of her mom is all the time she took nurturing dance as a part of her daughter's being. 

"She never complained and relentlessly supported me from age 3 until I joined the Memphis Ballet Company at age 16, instilling the love of dance. I still dance today and mom and I jitterbug around when we are together."

As for what she would like to receive for Mother's Day, Silberman said, "As a mom, the greatest gift my four children can give me is their sincere devotion to our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ, and instill this in their babies."

Melissa Brown's favorite memory of her mom is how she would lovingly sing "You are my Sunshine" as she and her sister cuddled next to her in early mornings.
