NOT NEWS – Hiatus

wp-1471874342635.jpg

After being unable to reach her by phone all day, I went to my mother’s apartment last Monday and found her in her recliner, television on, dead. The funeral was Thursday and today will be the last day my sister and I sit shiva. I will, in the fullness of time, write about Helen, if I decide I’m equal to the subject. In the meantime, here is a photo of her taken this past fourth of August, her 87th birthday.

    David,
    I’m sorry for your loss. May the good memories help ease the pain.

    Magnificent woman. I loved what Samara said about how Helen taught Samara to be independent. Helen taught us all to be independent, as my mother did. We are so grateful to have amazing Moms!
