Reader-submitted reflection on mom: Beth Neuleib

“My mother died in February 2003, and I can honestly say she was my best friend. She died in a freak roof collapse in downtown Fergus Falls. There is not an hour that goes by still this day almost 10 years later that I do not think of her.

“I was in the process of planning my wedding when she was killed and went on to marry my ‘new best friend’ that fall. My husband and I now have two young daughters, and I can only hope that I can be a mother like she was and raise my children to think as much of me as I do of my mom.”

– Beth Neuleib, 35, Fergus Falls, Minn.
