Remember mum...

Today marks my mum died 31 years ago. She was only 52. It does not seem that long ago, yet in the same breath it feels a life time ago. She loved life so much, and cared about everyone else, never herself. She suffered from what was called then "manic-depressive" and often was the life of the party, or the saddest person I ever knew. She was a magical being, and rarely valued by those around her, few ever saw her true worth.

this is her in August 1987 at a wedding for a niece
(on the left between brothers), just
four months later she would be gone.

A school picture.  These are the few photos I have left after the fire.
She was the family photographer, always taking pictures, only all
to be lost in the fire.
