Mother's Day in the United States falls on the second Sunday of May each year and was first celebrated 105 years ago on May 10th in 1908. And in Mexico, May 10th was also the date Dia de las Madres was first celebrated and it falls on 5/10 every year.....
So to celebrate we recognize CONCEPCION REYES, pictured above with Art Laboe at the 1987 La Bamba movie premiere. She is the Madre of one of the most iconic Mexican-Americans in rock and roll, RITCHIE VALENS. La Bamba is the name of Ritchie's 1958 hit and the movie La Bamba was the story of his short yet legendary life.
Feliz Dia de la Madres to ALL MOMS...you are loved and appreciated!
