Sorry I'm late to this thread Bo. I missed a ton of threads being away for much of last week/weekend.
First up, your story resonates very much with me, although there is no family musical connection to act as a catalyst. Placing a concentration on precious smiles from your mother is absolutely the thing to do. Treasure her, then treasure her again. You're a good man, & I'm honoured to "know" you.
Back to the uke - beautiful instrument. A lot of skill & love right there, but isn't it funny how us drummers can see $1500 worth of value in a stringed instrument, yet baulk at the same price tag on a snare drum. At the high end, similar skills, similar work, similar costs.
