Continuing the celebration of our parents and their love for each other,
I have created a couple of collages
using Picasa. Here is a photo of
the cake topper from their wedding
in 1952, a black and white photo
mounted on hardboard.
Mom and Dad sit together most
of their time in a double recliner,
sometimes holding hands…
I have scanned some old negatives and put together images here of Mom and Dad. In the center is Mom, pregnant. and In the middle at the top is Dad holding my older sister. I wonder if that might have been his first Father’s Day?
In these images of them as young adults I see the faces of my siblings, myself, my own children, and nieces and nephews.
As I write this, Dad is in the hospital and even my dear father-in-law is in the hospital. Strange that both should be ill at the same time. I’m happy to report that both are improving.
Life is so very precious. Celebrate it with someone you love, and tell them what they mean to you.
