My mom shows her affection by taking care of us. I don’t remember her as being terribly affectionate. As a matter of fact, even now hugging is a bit awkward, but she’s extremely thorough in her care. And for the most part she’s taken good care of my father for the 55 years that they’ve been married. My dad and I would sit at home or at the Menlo Park facility watching as my mom cleaned, did laundry or cooked and he often would say to me, “she’s a good woman”.
