This is my tribute and her lesson that she gave,
She is and old sweet lady and  one of the people that really, affected my life in some positive way and tought me a valuable lessen about givin is better thatn recceiving. I don't know if she is still alive, but her memories is still as vivid as it can be in my barin.

Years ago, I believe it was 1998, because I was rushing to get my voter registration done so I could vote for Clinton's first turn in the office, I used to work in the shopping mall, had a little kiosk, or cart we would call, selling some trinkets, nicnacks and some customized picture mugs.  She was retired and lived in good community close by the mall so she didn't have to drive to work. She was working to keep herself occupied and for a little extra cash. She was part of the group that would meet every morning in the mall cafeteria for a laough over a cup of coffe. Almost everybody worked in the mall knew her. She had grown aduldt son and other kids. Then one day one of the cart owners asked to to help him out with the cart working part time.  She started to work, in a few days we became very good friends, she was motherly.
She had asthma, I helped her with opening the card, lifting the stuff for her.
Any way, after a while she stopped working but still continued coming and wisiting. Every morning, she would come thru one end of the mal walk through all the way and hug everyone she knows one by one. No exception, everyday. then she would go meet her friends, have her coffe and leave.
One day I asked her, I said " Gloria, how come you hug everybody, including me everyday and never miss any day or any one. Aren't ty ou tired of it? How come you are so nice?"

She, with that motherly attitude, and calmly said it is OK, I like it?
I said " How come?"
She goes, " you know what, I hug everyone, everybody gets a hug but, along the way, I get fifteen or twenty hugs, at my age it is worth a million bucks"
Seh said, " when you give more actually you get more thatn what you give"
Well, for me, this is a life forming lesson that everybody on the face of the earth should learn and fallowl.
