    President Nixon told the gathering:



    "I remember the last conversation I had with her. It was in the mid-'60's. It had not been particularly a good period for me - I just lost for President, and then I lost for Governor of California. There wasn't anything else to run for, so I moved to New York and started to make money. I came back to see her because she had several serious operations and the prognosis was that she would not live. I remember going into the hospital room - I talked to her awhile. I noticed that she seemed to be a little down. I said: 'Mother, don't give up'. And, all of a sudden she got up on her elbow, and she looked at me and she said: 'Richard, don't you ever give up.'"
