One quick fun memory of my mom was when she would take us to the town pool. It was an event that helped me to be a child and my brothers also could forget the other part of our lives. At the town pool, Mom was our mother who slathered us in Sea and Ski. She would get in the pool, put me on her back and swim from one end to the other. I remember the smell of chlorine and the noise of the people and radios with 70’s music blaring. But when I was on her back all of that disappeared and it was just her gliding through the water and me.
