HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM


Today my mom would be 84 years old.  This seems impossible to imagine, since she died when she was only 54.  I think she would still be elegant and funny and smart and generous and kind and my biggest cheerleader.  I know for a fact that she would still be needlepointng and caring for her ferns and futzing about the house to make it home and beautiful. She had the ability to walk into a room and make instant friends with everybody in it, and I remember her smile and her laugh and her beautiful skin, and I miss her every day.

So, Happy Birthday Vaceila Helen Loukos Rich.  You left us too soon but will be in our hearts forever.

  6. Wow! I agree with your other dear readers, you do look like your Mom. In fact I think you are more like your Mom than you take credit for. We've seen pics of both your lovely, homey homes and you brighten up blogworld with your posts.
    The older I get the more I appreciate and miss my own dear Mom.

  15. At first glance I thought you posted a new photograph of your very self. "Mirror, mirror on the wall, I am my mother after all". Thank you for sharing her with us.

  16. I do not have a single original comment to add! Because I came in here to say you look so much like your pretty mom. You've walked into our (internet) rooms and made friends all around so that apple didn't fall too far from the tree!
