My Mom is a towering figure in my life as my biggest advocate – I’m writing in present tense because she still is and always will be despite her no longer physically being on this earth. I knew Mom had an accomplished career in many respects but to me she was just Mom – or Hurricane Phyl as I fondly called her because she was a true force of nature with an indomitable spirit. She set an example for me of what it means to be a strong, confident woman who is sweet, kind and thoughtful to others no matter who they are or what they did. “Kill them with kindness, Pam,” she would tell me. She loved ALL people. I’m ashamed to admit I would get embarrassed – as a daughter sometimes does – because she was so abundantly friendly to people everywhere we went. At restaurants she would delve into our waiter’s life history, asking question after question about themselves. Making them feel special. A hallmark Mom trait. In this time of grief, I find solace that I can carry on her legacy, not just in my professional life but in the way she lived her life outside of public view where she really shined. One of my last memories of Mom is when she looked at my 3 month old daughter Vivienne Louise Georgia (named in her honor) and said “you’re worth fighting to live for aren’t you?” But as we’ve learned, no matter how much your spirit wants to fight, there’s only so much the body can handle. A month later, my brother and I were at her bedside pouring our hearts out in her final hours and singing “You are my Sunshine.” She was in a coma, but she somehow managed to shed tears that we tenderly wiped away. Now she no longer has to fight and can let her light shine from above for eternity. Love you, Mom. https://www.cnn.com/videos/business/2020/05/17/phyllis-georges-children-reflect-on-her-trailblazing-life.cnn @ Lexington, Kentucky
