We have the best mother (and mother-in-law) in the world. Marion Louise Sandman and Barbara Louise Matalucci are mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers. They are both the center of the family wheel. From Marion we have learned the joy of life. On her 87th birthday she parasailed in Florida and insisted on a dunk landing (water not land). She still works summers on the Wildwood boardwalk and never has an unkind word for anyone. From Barbara we have learned determination to conquer the new technology of the Internet and that at 78 you can have a Facebook page. Barbara tracks her grandchildren and family around the world on Facebook. These two women show us all how to be devout, loyal and determined mothers and mother-in-laws. Everyone could take a page from their non-meddlesome playbook of life. - Sue Sandman, Mays Landing
