My mother's life has not been an easy one. At the age of 42, she was widowed with four teenage children after my father died suddenly. She worked three jobs so we could get to where we are today. Her life was not glamorous. She scrubbed other people's floors and waited tables. To me, she looked beautiful, despite of, or maybe because of, the strength I saw in her sweaty brow and bucket of cleaning supplies. She volunteered at my elementary school and taught our class about art. She was my Girl Scout leader.

When Jessica Hill was in preschool, her grandmother would pick her up every day after school. On Fridays, they would go to the mall and see a movie. Now a junior at Dulaney High School, 16-year-old Jessica still spends time with her grandmother, Betty Kessler, 77, often sharing pizza and playing cards. "She loves pizza, and she loves to play cards," said Jessica, a Lutherville resident. "She loved to play Gin Rummy. Now we play War or Go Fish with guidance. " Hill's grandmother was diagnosed with vascular dementia about seven years ago and her memory has steadily diminished.
