Little Mo's daughter describes her upbringing and life lessons from her mother, the prodigious teenage tennis champion who died of cancer in her 30s. I was pleased to find the book autographed by the author, Cindy Brinker SImmons which I had not expected.

I wish I had known Little Mo 4 Jun 2001
By Jill A. Bertolet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Little Mo was surely an extraordinary woman and touched everyone she met in her short 32 years. Cindy carries her mothers legacy in her heart and shares stories and lessons learned from her mother with the rest of us. And inspiring they are! Cindy's writing carried me along from when as a 12 year old she lost her mother, through high school and college as she overachieved as a remedy to her heartache, and into her years of service to the community and God. Her mother would have been proud and we are all better for the lessons Cindy shares. You are guaranteed a good cry and in the end feel that a glimpse into Cindy's life is a gift. You must read this book and give it to every mother and child you know. I'd like to think that I might make the same sort of mark that Little Mo and now Cindy have made. I'll not forget this book.
