1949 – May 5, 2008

My mother did not keep many material things but she did save pictures.  Although this is one of the few “portrait” pictures I have of us, she did store many candid snapshots and polaroids.  I don’t recall her ever owning a camera but somehow she always got others to give her copies of pictures they took.  After she passed and we went through her things (less than 10 boxes of stuff), we found tons of pictures.  Included were 2 packets labeled and divided up between my sister and I.  My mother was a unique…perhaps odd person who struggled most of her life with the expectations of life, parenting and relationships.   And I miss her terribly.
