An oldie picture, but I don't have many of my mother. I've written this before - she always dodged the camera, ever elusive. This is back in the 1980s - Lori's early years in college and we were visiting her. I was in from TX. My brother is missing. So young and vibrant.
Today - June 21st is my mother's birthday. She's been gone twenty five years now.
Happy Birthday Mom! I'll eat some chocolate cake in her honor.
I liked this quote by Russell Baker: Children rarely want to know who their parents were before they were parents, and when age finally stirs their curiosity, there is no parent left to tell them
