Like most of you, we love our own mom more than any other. But there are some famous mothers that are so remarkable, we can't help loving them too. Like Matthew Shepard's mom Judy, who got Obama to make good on his promise to sign The Matthew Shepard/James Bryd Jr. Act into law last October. Thank you Mrs. Shepard!
