My best friend Joanne, her mom was soft, and she smelled like macaroni and cheese, and she'd pick me up on her lap and she would rock me. She said that she wanted to keep to herself. She said that I was good and sweet. Everybody said I was. Do you realize that you've never told me that I'm pretty? Not once in my life?
―Kate Lockley to her father[src]

Joanne's Mom was the only maternal example for Kate Lockley after her own mother died when she was child.
