Mother: To me she is a mother who dried eyes, changed diapers and tied our shoes, Times she spanked us, for our ways, But this showed us, how much she cared, She had hard times and good times, As she watched, when we all grew, She loved us all in her own way, Each child, was different, only she knew, At times, some thought she loved them less, With so many children, she wouldn't press, Remember, the trips to the dentists and doctors, Not only with some, but all of us, On graduation, there she sat, Ready to give us each a pat, Proud she, was of all of us.

Our problems, joys and extra fuss, Showed os, what our mother was made of, Strength to shoulder all our burdens, Some we made ourselves, And some we didn'1, she was there, Behind us all the way. With Mom beside us. Oh what a day, When she became a grandmother, She tried to be there, for each and all, Holding our hands and showing her love, History was repeated, Her grandchildren, treated like her children, Punished, when she thought a must, Going to school and graduation, her grandchildren, she did go. Loving each and everyone in her own and special way, Love, like her's, we can't surpass. Sadly missed by HER 13 CHILDREN, SONS-IN-LAW AND DAUGHTERS-IN-LAW AND 52 GRANDCHILDREN.

After 2 Years In Coma, Victim: Of Beating Dies BOSTON (AP) Richard Poleet, beaten unconscious with rocks and bricks during racial tension two, years ago, died Tuesday without ever coming out of his coma.

Mr. Poleet, a white auto mechanic, was dragged from his car and beaten by blacks near a housing project in the Roxbury section. During a wave of racial turmoil connected with the April 19, 1976, attack, a black lawyer was beaten and two black bus drivers were attacked in separate incidents. Police who had worked on the case said they doubted if charges against Mr. Poleet's two convicted attackers could be changed to murder.

"As we understand it, you have to die within a year and a day of the time the wounds were inflicted," Detective Thomas Montgomery said of changing charges to murder.
