Remembering Momma (babyhood through Alzheimers)

My Mother  B.C.A. 1912 ~ 2009
From the beginning of one century to the beginning of the New Millennium.  My dear mom. I miss you.
I want to ask you more questions. Life is so full of questions.
 
 The early 20th Century
 the adored first grandchild.

The middle years. Life as a wife, mother and artist. Caught between two worlds.

Great Grandmother


Momma and Me
Her 90th Years... The Alzheimer Assault.
Age 90. Still Brilliant, Eager, Inquiring

Surrounded by the next generations and slightly confounded by it all.
The Years When Memory Escaped and Love Took Over
Ravaged by Alzheimer's age 96. Still Beautiful. 
The Gift to live a long and convoluted life. Guided by faith, Loved by family, Cherished in Memory. 
We Look Unto The Heavens. Our Strength and Salvation .
Beautiful and Young
The Breeze Soft On Her Skin.

Alzheimer's Stole You.
Love Kept You.
Remembering You. With Love and Tears.
