The Last Birthday

I know a couple of these photos are re-posts but is that not true of memories? Today would have been my mother's 73rd birthday. The above photo (1942) shows her being held by her sister when she was 1 year old. Below: It seems like I was about 1 year old as I look at this. 1989?

Maybe the saddest thing for me is that her and the boys will not get to know one another like I want them to. At least they got some time together.
We can't know when it's our last birthday. Lets all act as if it were and appreciate the time we have with our loved ones. I miss you, Mom...
