Falk remembers his mother’s pride in her chosen profession and her dedication to learning. “She was in nursing school when I was a small boy. As a single mother, she had to get creative in order to find the time and space to do her school work. I remember occasionally watching her through our front window while she studied in our car as it was parked in the driveway. She and I could keep an eye on each other, but she could still have little time to do her homework.”
