My Mom

My Mom died November 11th, 2003.  Ten years ago today and still there are moments and days I recall with complete clarity.  Last year I posted photos of Mom at Cossayuna Lake where our family spent every July for many years.  We all loved it but I think maybe Mom loved it best of all. It was the one place where she completely relaxed.  And that is how I like to remember her.  I've decided to post them again this year, and perhaps I always will on this sad anniversary, because these are my most cherished memories.  This year I am adding a favorite picture of me with Mom when I was 6.  

July 1959.  Mom could float for hours - it was like her secret power.

July 1962

July 1966

I'm sure there is a lake in Mom's part of Heaven.
