She knew my passion for music. She knew everything I did in music and I would run everything by her on the moves. In some cases before the moves. She stood right beside me the complete way from being a lead singer in a ba-- moving to BIRMINGHAM from DETROIT -- being a Bands there then Being a Manager of Bands booking The Grande Ballroom and all the Clubs to working at Discount Records to Punch Andrews Bob Seger's manager -- getting me my first job at MERCURY RECORDS -- and it keeps going. I have seen a lot and my Mom saw it all through my eyes. She was a Special Mom. Amazing."
