Happy Birthday Mom

Today would have been my Mom's birthday. She would have turned 90 today but she died at the end of March. Last time I saw her was at my Dad's funeral last October. I was only home for a couple days for Dad's funeral and my brother and I scrambled to deal with paperwork while there. I didn't have much time to take photos but one night I was able to visit with my niece's children. Her daughter Eva asked you to use my camera to take some photos. Within about three minutes of instructions, she was running around the house taking photos. Photos I will treasure as this was the last time I was with Mom and one of the last photos of her. This was such a lovely image we used it for her obituary. Eight months later I'm still sad I wasn't with her as she passed or at her funeral. I'm thankful for the time I was able to be with her on Facetime as my brother Bob sat with her as she passed. He did a Zoom meeting so I could be there along with my nephew in Alaska and cousin in Fredericksburg. Mom died of natural causes but my heart goes out to all the families who have lost ones due to Covid and especially those that couldn't be with them as they passed.
