This photo, taken February 28, 2013, is the last happy photo I have of Dad celebrating his birthday. He was 81.
If he were still on this side of Heaven, Daddy and Mama would have been celebrating 64 years of marriage last Tuesday.
Mama had a fun couple of days with her Florida granddaughter Seanna, who flew on an airplane BY HERSELF to Indiana for a week-long fling before her school starts.
My "baby" brother Mark and his family arrived at Mama's for a visit just as we were leaving for our week-long family vacation.
I am blessed to live just 20 miles from Mama, an easy country drive away.
Most weeks I see her at least twice and talk to her a couple more times. And every visit these days is an adventure!
