A Mother’s Love

Dear Editor: The first night out since the covid 19 pandemic put a stop to public events, will forever be etched in my memory. On March 25, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. it was mom and son night!

I accompanied Allie H. Freeman (Mom) to Kleinhans Music Hall to see Leslie Odom Jr. who performed with the great Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.

Mother and Son: Allie Freeman and Patrick Freeman (The Mighty O’Ba)

It has been about two years since witnessing the beauty of music and how it soothes, mind, spirit, and the soul. I found myself wiping away tears not just because of the music but for the institution of motherhood. There is no more sacred institution on this planet than the love of one’s Mom.

I give thanks every day that I have her in my life and it is my sacred duty to make each day for her a delightful day. Honor and Respect to you mom!

I am so honored just to be one of your three sons – James Jr., Patrick, and Russell. From the same place we entered this world into your loving arms what a dignified lady of Delta Sigma Theta you are!

What a night to remember for me just to be in your presence We Give Thanks!

-The Mighty O’Ba (Patrick Freeman)
