    One of my favorite memories of your mom comes from the time I went on a cruise with you all. Your mom and I were sitting by a pool. On one side was a gaggle of college students. On the other side were two business men types. The college girls tried to flag down staff to order drinks. No luck. The two businessmen tried to flag down staff to refresh their drinks. No luck. Both groups started complaining about the poor service. Your mom listened to both groups for a bit, then leaned towards me, gave me a mischievous smile, and said, "Watch this!" She then raised her arm, and twiddled her fingers. Not one but two members of the ship's staff showed up, seemingly out of nowhere, totally attentive, asking is she needed anything. She ordered wine for both of us, and then, in a voice clear enough for people on both sides to hear, said "and please help these people here (nodding to the college kids) and here (toward the business men)." After our drinks were served, and everyone around us got theirs, one of the college girls called out to your mom - polite but puzzled- "How did you do that?" Your mom looked at her drink, then at the college kid, gave that same mischievous smile, and said, "When you got it, you got it." Very true. She will be missed.
