A year ago today, my mother passed away on her birthday. She would have been 83 years old today. My mother was not a person who was comfortable talking about herself, but during the year before she died we looked through some photos of her as a girl. This portrait is one of my favorites.
Another photo that I found after she was gone was this candid that appears to be taken at her parents’ home in Derry, Pennsylvania. This has become another favorite of mine.
We miss you, Mom.
