Mom traveled on many roads and most roads were the ones less traveled. Thanks Mom for everything. Mom loved Life, Family, Music and Parties. She raised 6 children on a shoestring budget and still cooked casseroles for others in need. One resilient generation. Mom could sing. Around the house. In the church. She had a beautiful voice. Tender like a lullaby. Light and airy, uplifting. Strong, like she was. She was a Southern woman living in Beverly Hills with 6 children driving a convertible with a bunch of kids on their way to the beach and beyond. She drove to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion to see all of the musicals too! Bloody Mary's and Greyhounds on site, Big Band music always playing, the smells of homemade food cooking. Family first!
