To the greatest girl from Bristol

Sending love to the greatest girl I ever knew, who also lived in Bristol. My beautiful mother. I still see your wide smile and that off-beat crazy dance you did to this silly song. Your enthusiastic singing along, off-key. But you are never off my mind. Not even for a day. I still feel your bear hugs and kisses.

You live forever!

Mom was born on January 8, 1944 and passed in 2005. The same day (but not year) that Elvis was born, which she always reminded us about.

    What a beautiful photo!

    It’s funny how we sometimes point out our relationships to celebrities. If people ask me for my birthday, I always let them know that I share the same birthday (day, month, and year) as Angelina Jolie. 🙂

      Thanks, Mark! I remember the day that photo was taken well. I was the one that put the flower in my mom’s pocket.

      Cool company on your birthday!
