MAMA, THE BRIDE
ME ...ON MY MAMA's LAP
THE LAST TIME MAMA and I WERE CAPTURED ON CAMERA
( Yes, that's 11 year-old me during my graduation from Grade School. Three years later, Mama was diagnosed with ALS and had to spend 8 years on a wheelchair until her eventual death in 1992).
Wherever you are, Mama, I know you're still watching over me. I hope you don't mind my putting your photos here, but I thought it best to remember you in the pink of health than post photos showing you looking so skinny and pale as you sat on your wheelchair.
And, these are all I'll ever have of you now...along with the memories.
Happy Birthday, Mama!
