In honor of Mom

CNJ staff photo: Liliana Castillo Clovis resident Don Reid wrote to his mother at least three times a week while serving in Vietnam. Before she died, she returned the letters to him.

In honor of Mother’s Day, the CNJ asked Clovis citizens of all ages to tell us about their mothers. Among them:

• Candace Gulley’s first grade class at Highland Elementary School shared letters they wrote to their mothers in class.

• Estefany Armendariz’s first grade class at Lockwood Elementary School shared with us the bags they painted for their mothers.

• Clovis resident Don Reid shared his experience writing to his mother as a 19-year-old Army recruit in Vietnam.
