'Best mother of all time' to get visit from her Perrysburg son

I am about to be starting my third month with The Blade, and living in Perrysburg. While everything has been wonderful one main thing has been missing: My mother. 

Coming to this area was like a homecoming of sorts since my mom grew up a farm in Findlay and went to Cory Rawson High School. Living here has been great, but it feels strange living in Ohio while my mother is in Michigan. 

Every Mother's Day growing up, my brothers and I used to pile into whatever vehicle she had at the time and take U.S. 23 South, past Perrysburg, to Findlay to visit my grandma. This weekend I will reverse my trip, heading north on 23, and I'm sorry to disappoint all you other sons and daughters out there - but I'll be visiting the best mother of all time.
