The Wild Blue Yonder




My Mom, my friend, left this world yesterday.  This photo of her was taken on a cruise in 2012.  She and her partner, Frank, packed a lot of adventures into 11 years.  They gallivanted all over this country, and a number of others too.  She had always wanted to travel, and I'm so glad she was able to do that.








I'll miss so many things... her humor, the way she woke us on our birthdays (with a kazoo!), her cooking... She was one of two souls in my life that, like me, was prone to burst out in song when something reminded her of one.  I guess I'll have to sing for the both of us now, though I have no doubt she'll be singing along.

Laurie, you know how I feel and I will send you a private note, but you know you had the best mom ever. She had such a joy for life and I believe she passed that on to you. She was so proud of you. Keep her alive in you,my friend. I will miss her so much.
