  1. I continue to be amazed by all your family photos. Truly a treasure.

    Nearly two years ago, when I was tasked with sorting through my mom’s photos and photo albums, I came across about a two-inch square photo of her sister Deloris, who died of whooping cough at nine months. It sparked me to write a piece of creative non-fiction which published in an anthology. This photo of my aunt made her “real” and made me feel such sadness at her death. How fortunate we are to now have vaccines for these once-deadly diseases.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
