My mom was so much fun to be around. Even grocery shopping was fun. She'd frequently stop to talk to folks she did not know just to say how much she liked
their hair or their clothes. She made everyone smile.
When I was growing up one of our favorite things to do was pack a little sack lunch and go to Los Feliz to check out the thrift stores and then on the way back stop off at Griffith Park have a picnic lunch.
She introduced me to replicas of famous artworks at Forest Lawn, a love of art endures to this day because of her.
I will always carry a piece of Momma with me where ever I go.
I am glad I was able to keep my promises to her and make her last years full of love and joy.
