Remembering Mom

Today is my Mom's birthday. She passed away in 2006 and I miss her terribly.But I find great peace in knowing we had a great run together. This picture is when she served as a Wave in the US Navy during World War II. She was so proud of her service and she was also beautiful in a uniform!

I'll raise a glass to her today. July 5, 1921 ~ January 18, 2006


  1. Happy Birthday Mom!

    The resemblance is striking as was your mom. My mom turned 76 on July 1st. It is always in the back of my mind that she won't be around forever and I know I will miss her terribly too. It is from her that I got my love of food, adventure, and trying new things.

    Ah, Ruthie! She is beautiful in uniform! She's also beautiful in the light blue denim work shirt with the white hair, which is how she was the last day I saw her at Longridge Farm. Happy Birthday Miss Ruth. Lauriella
