My mother’s health declined to the point last year where she could no longer live independently. The photo to the right shows her with all of her living children, taken Mother’s Day 2011 at the nursing home in Richmond, where she was first placed. Compared to today, as the photos I’ve placed on my Facebook page show, she actually looks healthy.
I hold in my heart today the image of the vibrant woman who was my mama.
Happy birthday, Mama.
