I have beautiful memories of watching my mom beside the fireplace for hours with her little dog Chee Chee. I can see her Beauty charcoals and pastels in hand making flowers come alive on canvase and portraits of my sister Susan that were unbelievable. She's a Fine Artist here and I'm sure she's a Fine Artist in Heaven painting Flowers of many colors with my Grandmother Toni :) I love you mom! Your daughter Jennifer
