Today was Mama’s birthday. She would have been 95 years old today. She died in November of 1997, though. Here are some pictures of her through the years.
Here she is with HER grandmother, in 1921.
Here is her portrait from Junior High School (about 1932)
This is her college portrait (about 1940).
Here she is with ME when I was about 3 months old (Fall of 1944)
Here they are again in 1980.
And here they are in 1982 after she lost a bunch of weight (I’m trying to do as well).
This is Mama and Papa in 1992 right after she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
This is the last picture I have of her at Mama and Papa’s 50th wedding anniversary party, in June of 1994.
I still miss her, particularly on days like today (her birthday), Mother’s Day, and June 24th (Papa’s and her wedding anniversary).
