Mom, you were so beautiful, so robust, so full of life. You traveled. You traveled alone, you traveled with family and friends. Speaking of which, look at all your friends. You cultivated them and had lasting friendships from New Jersey in the 40's, right up to your newest friends on Marco. You gobbled up theatre as much as you did good food! You loved the beach and a good swim. You were always ready to dress up and go find a new adventure. Thanks for taking me with you. I miss you madly.
