There’s a character in FIGHTING FOR ELENA who is very important but who doesn’t appear very often. In fact, her presence only occurs in the occasional “whispered” comment she makes to Pops. “Who’s that?” you ask. That would be the ghost of Rosie West, Pops first wife and his “One”–at least until he meets Elena. Pops and Rosie never had kids of their own but they raised a whole passel of other people’s kids. And Rosie was a “milk and cookies” kind of mom born and bred in Texas. Oh, she made them eat their vegetables, but they always got dessert. The following is a favorite of Pops AND the kids.
