In preparation for my mother's memorial service, my niece A and I spent hours going through family photos, looking for pictures of my mom. (Niece A wanted to make some photo collages for the reception.)
Since I don't take after my Mom facially (in fact my baby pictures look exactly like my Dad in a dress), I can say without reservation that she was a knockout. No wonder Dad fell for her.
Today is Mom's memorial service. All my siblings are here, and most of my nieces and nephews. A sad and happy day.
Goodbye, Mom. I love you.
