Happy Birthday, Mother

Janet age 2 on a trike, Akron Ohio
Here is a picture of my mother, age 2, when they were living in Akron, Ohio - 1924. I don't think she wanted her picture taken.

And then a picture of her atop Monte Solaro on Capri, on the big European trip they took in the early 1980s (I don't remember if it was 1981 or 80). Below that, one of the last pictures of her before her strokes. It's on her birthday, 2001.

I do miss her, still.

If I knew your mother had lived in Akron I had forgotten. My mother moved to Akron from South Georgia with her sister and mother around 1925. She lived there until after WWII when she and my father and brother moved back to my fathet’s home town in Georgia.

They lived there about the same time, then. But my mother's family moved to Texas, and then South Carolina.
