My Mom died the other day. Doing what she loved to do, shopping! And with her passing goes a woman with incredible spirit, love and affection. We will all miss her, especially her cooking. 83 years young, Mom never knew how to stop going. Despite lots of pain and discomforts as she got older, she persevered and always got the job done. Her most recent accomplishment: Senior Volunteer of the Year Award near her summer home in the Catskills. Mom, I miss you very, very much. We all do.
