In honor of Mother's Day, I am posting a pic of my Mom. This is my favorite picture of her, at Hermit's Rest Grand Canyon Village in September, 1995. She passed away 2 months later. She was 66 years old. Even though it's been almost 19 years since she passed away, there isn't a day that goes by without me thinking of her and missing her.

My Mother passed away in 1988, at the early age of 63.  Here she is before I came into the world, pictured with my older sibs,5 & 6 years older than me.  You can see I was a few years away yet, from their ages.

My grandmother's house in Kansas was wrapped in a shingle type covering that was designed to look like the brick pattern your Mom is standing next to.

A good day to introduce the new mom in my family. This is why this will be my first Mother's Day as a grandma

Neat idea! The first one is my mom around 10-years-old, and the other is from a few years ago.

Mom, with me and my brothers at Christmas 2013.  I don't have any digitized versions of early pictures of her--I need to do something about that.

I figure you can tell which one is me.
