Beloved Wife and Mother

Watching "Curb Your Enthusiasm" at the breakfast table.  The episode takes place at a funeral for Larry's wife's aunt, where they discover that no one has written an obituary.  Naturally, it falls to Larry and they decide on 'beloved wife and mother'. 
I turn to John and say, "Now THERE'S a phrase I DON'T want in my obituary.  'Beloved wife and mother'!!"
Ben asks, "Why?"
I say, "Beloved wife and mother?  Is that what you think of when you think of me?  Beloved wife and mother??"
Ben pauses for a moment, and then quietly says, "Awesome wife and mother..."  And then, after another moment...  "Or epic."

And there you go.

The continuing adventures of a mom and son rediscovering each other in the absence  of the oldest...
