My Mom at age 36

She is very gorgeous at 36. She gave birth to 6 kids between the age of 18 and 28. Two of them died. Michael died shortly after birth, and Lydia died at birth. I remember going to the funeral home to see Michael..my dad lifted me up to see him in the casket. I touched his fingers. It was 1956...I was 3 years-old. I totally recall it.

I just love this picture of my mom...which was the one in the local paper when she died..on 9-11-01. My dad died on the very same day, in 1994...7 years earlier to the very day. They were divorced in 1964. I am thinking, like my bro, that I will get a tattoo in their honor. He got a big one on his upper arm..I am thinking I'll get one around my wrist.

I love this photo too. I have it in my family room. She really was a stunner.
