Some of you have read about my mom in the past. She's 91 now and living in a care home after her Alzheimer (or dmeenz, whatever) got so bad, my dad couldn't care for her anymore. I visited her last October and was shocked at how she looked.... much thinner then I have known her the past years and, of course, she didn't know me or my son, who was also visiting. No, I won't add I picture.... they are too sad looking.
Anyway..... I have lots of good memories about my mom. She provided me with a happy childhood. My dad was in the navy and it was her job to take care of me and my two brothers all alone when he was away.
Here are a few pictures of her through the years......
1920 as a child...
1950 with me.... introducing me to coke!
1951 with my dad and older brother, Bob....
at my wedding, 1970..
my visit in 2009, the last time I spent time with her at home... she rarily knew who I was..
I really wish she could have gotten to meet her great-granddaughters. She was a great mom and grandma.
Love ya, Mom!!
