Editor’s Note: Mother’s Day probably should be every day, which makes tomorrow extra special. When Helen Selgren-Lyman, who teaches first grade at Naval Avenue Elementary School, approached the Patriot with the idea of publishing her students’ letters to their mothers, we couldn’t refuse. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers everywhere.
