Mom would have been 80 years old today, none of her family lived to be 80; she came the closest. In her honour, I am having Mass said today for the deceased members of my family. I thought I'd share some photos from her life.
This is mom and my sister Sharron, who died at the age of 16.
Mom, holding my sister Georgia, in the back row are her sisters Pat and Lora, and sister in law Ruth. In the front row are me, my brothers Tony and Joe, and Sharron. Georgia, myself, and Tony are the only ones left now.
Aunt Pat, mom, and aunt Zelda. May they all rest in peace.
