"It’s a cliché but she always tells me, and my dad tells me, too, you’re going to get far if you always treat everyone the way you want to be treated. You give something it comes back 10 times over."

"My mom was always trying to teach us something. My mom was a clean freak, so it was always about keeping your home clean and looking beautiful and your home was a reflection of who you are. Always manners. She was very strict about those things. As children, tiny, she made us shake hands with every single person we met. It’s embarrassing sometimes going around—like 20 people. She was very strict like that."

"My mom inspires me the most, especially having to put up with me and not giving up on me. I was a handful growing up. She stayed focused on all of her children and gave us the best life that she and my father could. I'm just happy to look back and be able to help her and give her a great life."

"My mom has given me great advice, some of it I don’t understand it all yet but I find as I go along it makes sense. She told me that in life and in motherhood you have to eat the fish and throw away the bones. What applies to you do it and what doesn’t throw it away."

"Early on our mom encouraged us, sometimes encouraging by grounding, to get along," says Kimberly Perry. "I remember one day we were all kind of being fussy with each other, years and years and years ago, and she and our dad took us over to a window in our house and said, 'Out there is the world and you're going to have to fight it every day. You're not going to fight it inside our family.' I think so much of that early instruction has really come in handy these days when we live in really close quarters."
