As Mother's Day quickly approaches, Inez Huskins is looking forward to touching base with her relatives and "extended family" on Sunday. Owning and operating a daycare business out of her Cartersville home for the past 40 years, the 80-year-old is affectionately known as "grandmother" to many in the Bartow community.

"What I enjoy most [is] the hugging and the kissing," Huskins said. "They come up and kiss me on my cheek and say, 'Grandmother, I love you.' They call me grandmother -- everybody that knows me, the doctors, the lawyers, the nurses. I can go to the hospital and when they see me, they'll holler, 'Hi grandmother.' I've kept ... [the children of] several of the doctors, ambulance drivers, hospital nurses, state patrol. I've just kept everybody."
