My mother, Vicki Drown(Hughes), was a wonderful person. Although life tended to be a struggle, she always persisted. My brother and I have wonderful memories of our childhood. Halloween costumes were always handmade with perfection. Second hand clothes were purchased and made to look as if they were "designer" garnments. Trips to the duck pond and Storybook forest seemed a wonderous occasion. Whenever an opponent had checked me in a high school hockey game, she would politely yell at that horrible offender. Mom always had a positive outlook on life and it was certain anyone who was around her caught that bug as well. She used to recall her memories of getting ready for school to the full length version of "in-a-gadda-da-vida" and I hope the next time you here here this tune, you might think of her. She left us in June 2005 as a result of a brain tumor, a shock to all of us. She will be missed greatly. Devin Hughes
