Mom and I spent some lovely hours together a couple weeks before her heart attack. She's so merry, so much fun.
Her merriness, her capacity for fun, has crossed generations.
This is her precious granddaughter, Laura.
Here's her precious granddaughter, Kate - Laura's kid-sis. Their wonderful mom, Jen - is my kid-sis.
As Mother struggles to mend her heart and recover from this danged virus - it just feels good to put these pictures here - a testament to her life, to her capacity for wonder and laughter, to the forward- looking gift she gave to us all.
