I am so glad you mentioned this website for me to view. It brought me back in time and I enjoyed viewing your Mom growing up! I have pictures like that of my
parents and it reminds me of the "happy times" we all have in our life and we have to keep those memories alive! I do have pleasant memories from meeting your Mom!
