Muz, we called her. She grew up fatherless in the company of elderly aunts and uncles while her mother worked. She read everything. She graduated from college with a degree in medical technology. She worked to help put Faz through medical school She was married for 53 years. She sought adventure. She loved travel. She shot an antelope in Wyoming - the first and last animal she ever killed on purpose. She sailed through the Panama Canal. She went to Alaska. She learned and educated constantly. She loved everyone unconditionally. They all loved her back Unconditionally. She wanted a dozen children. She settled for three - and all the strays she could round up and bring home. She would try anything once. She was a great cook. She made a difference in the lives of those that knew her, and in the lives of many whom knew her only by reputation. She was my mom. She will always be my heroine.
