Even after my father completed engineering school and could give my grandmother anything she wanted, she never asked for anything

Mom…what comes to mind when you hear that word? For most of us, it probably brings back a flood of childhood memories. From afternoon soccer games, late night study sessions, and loads of dirty laundry, to always knowing just what to say to bring you up when you are feeling down, … there’s no one else in the world that knows you quite like your mother.

This Mother’s Day, Cruise Network, a provider of cruise vacations, cruise ship reviews, and cruise information, is giving you the opportunity to say thank you in a very big way.

Now through May 16, 2005 Cruise Network will be accepting nominations for the nation’s most extraordinary mothers. Ten finalists will then be selected and rewarded with a 5-night Caribbean cruise for two aboard Carnival Cruise Line Fascination, compliments of

All Mother’s Day gifts are certainly meaningful in their own way, but this one has a very special story behind it. Founder, President, and CEO of Cruise Network, Jai George, fondly remembers a woman that made an immense and everlasting impact on his life: his grandmother, Theresa.

“When my father was only eight years old, my grandfather became very ill. Suddenly, my grandmother, who had never worked a real job in her life, was solely responsible for providing for her family. After my grandfather passed away, she had just 50 cents to her name. She worked long days at two factory jobs. It was hard work, but she never complained, doing whatever she had to do to provide for her father, Mr. Lonen George.”

Mr. George is actually the youngest of 10 children. Devastatingly, all nine of his older siblings passed away…the tragic result of a devastating plague that swept across parts of Asia during the early 20th Century.

"Even after my father completed engineering school and could give my grandmother anything she wanted, she never asked for anything," he continued. "She knew she had already been given the greatest gift a mother could ever receive, seeing her son living the life she always dreamed he would have. Sadly, my grandmother has now passed away…and though she is greatly missed, her memory still lives on, as each and every day my family and I continue to live out her dream…the incredible life that she so selflessly created for us.”

Theresa spent virtually her entire life ensuring those around her felt happy and loved, and certainly never asked for anything in return. She never even had the chance to take a vacation...of any kind, something she most undoubtedly deserved.

This year, in her loving memory, Cruise Network is giving ten deserving mothers just like Theresa the opportunity to do what she never had the chance to. Theresa’s undying love and will to sacrifice her own life and well-being to ensure that her son was happy, healthy, and living the kind of life he deserved to live will never be forgotten.
