Mother’s Day message from husbands


It’s not only the children but also the dads and husbands who get to honor the best woman in their life on Mother’s Day. In this conversation with Saipan Tribune, the following husbands believe that big or small gestures to honor the woman with whom they share their lives and children with are not difficult to do.


“As a father of six, I appreciate my wife, first lady Diann Torres, so much for all the things that she has done for the children, especially when I am not there. I admire her strength through all the troubles that we have gone through as we never lost our faith in God and this makes me more appreciative of my own mother. My mother’s unconditional love means that, no matter what the situation is, no matter how sick or tired she is, she makes sure that her children are doing okay. I will always be grateful that she gave me my first breath. Her love and perseverance are never ending. She has taught me to always do the right thing and to move forward. She reminds me to be of help to the community, show love always, stay humble and put God as our priority before anything else. I will never be where I am without her and I love her so much.”

—Gov. Ralph Torres


“Happy Mother’s Day to my wife, Jill. She is a great partner in raising our children and making them well-adjusted and successful young women. She is a great role model to our daughters to follow. She is also a successful businesswoman and so I am happy to be her partner and husband. I am here to support her efforts, whether it is about our children, her business, social, [or] civic activities.”

—Jim Arenovski, businessman

“Lindsay is the heartbeat of our family. She is positive, adventurous, and more fun than all of us put together. She keeps us on our toes, keeps our lives moving forward, and makes sure we all feel cared for and loved. One thing I wish our kids remembered was how much she fussed over them when they were babies, all while maintaining a full-time job and even training for marathons soon after they were born! Lindsay is a force as a worker, a runner, and a mother. We are lucky to have her as a strong role model in our lives. Happy Mother’s Day!”

—Whit Altizer, Navy Hill


“My wife and I have been married for 40 years and she has managed the children very well from when they were young and now adults. My work entails that I go off island a lot so my wife has helped the children with their education and kept the family intact while working at the same time.”

—Das Krishnan, director of Food & Beverage, Crowne Plaza Resort Saipan

“To my wife, Angel, you truly are an angel! You are the greatest blessing the kids and I could ever ask for. We are grateful to have you each day and we wish you a very happy and blessed Mother’s Day and, together with Tian and JD, we also greet you an advanced birthday on May 18.”

—Victor Cabrera, teacher, Hopwood Middle School
