|Anne Evensen, 1970-something|
In a way I'm glad I didn't have to watch her grow old. That would have been hard too. She got to check out while she still looked great and had all her faculties.
I'm grateful for everything she sacrificed on my behalf, and the wonderful home she created for my father, brother and I. Thanks, Mamma.
If you are lucky enough to still have parents who are living, cherish your time with them. It goes all too quickly.
