A personal blog of this 76 year old gay man (ninth generation American) who retired to Delaware from Pennsylvania eleven years ago with his longtime partner/husband of 53 years.
Ron,I'm so sorry about the decline in your Mother's health. Nothing is sadder than watching this & not being able to do anything about it.As you know my Mom died 3 years ago. The hole in my heart will never be filled again. I do hold on to my memories as they are all good. I was the closest to her of my 2 sisters and I'm the middle child. Cherish the good times & all the wonderful pictures you have. I just love her smile!!!!Fran
Ron, I had that same shirt. I bought it in San Francisco in the summer of 1975. I emailed you a photo of me wearing it.
Thank you Fran. I will cherish all the memories I have of Mom. I just got off the phone with my brother John is caring for her. I thank him for all he is doing for her. He said he feels guilty because he is the only one (of us three brothers) who is getting to spend this final time with her. She is dying. We're making the arrangements for hospice care now. Very sad.Thank you for noticing her smile. She was always known for her smile. Very genuine. We haven't seen much of it lately. We would love to see it one more time. Maybe in our memories.
Hey Mike. Small world. Remember when plaid was in? I think I got rid of all of my plaid shirts....finally. I had tons of them. I still have the jeans though.
