MY MOTHER, EMILY MAE, R.I.P.

This morning about 9 am our Mother slipped away.  She's finally free of the pain and helplessness that had been her lot for too long.

This would be the Spring of 1947 with me the baby and Mom just turned 19

Many years later when Mom and Dad were the old folks

One of our last family portraits.  Yes Mom birthed eight of us and was sincerely loved by all of us. 
Mom was 85 last birthday and Dad was 88 when he passed two and a half years ago.
