They are there to assist parents in preserving the traditions their families have started, the memories they have made and the hopes and dreams they have for their children. While they hope that each mom and dad that they have the honor of serving makes a full recovery, in the even that one of them is taken from this earth, Let There Be Mom will have helped them leave something for their children to embrace.
