The Sun To Our Family





















Mom loved

a good porch sit
London
books
blueberries
getting her hands in the garden
Christmas
her family
a good cup of coffee
teapots
her church community
Cornwall
scarves
museums
mittens
needlepoint
a comfortable pair of shoes
her friends = just like a comfortable pair of shoes!
Florence
honeydew melon
the color purple
music
reading her meditations to me over a cup of tea
African violets
New York City
theatre
wallpaper
helping people
Toronto
the ocean
a good laugh


forever grateful 
for the love of my mother, 
the Sun to our family.


















in loving memory
