A DAY TO CHERISH
This photo of my mom, Ethel, and my boyfriend, Mitch, means the world to me because it was the last Christmas I had with Mom. She loved nature—it was deep in her soul—and she gladly accepted any chance to be outside. On this day we rode through meadows and valleys to pick out her little Christmas tree. Isn’t it beautiful? She was 91 years old here and nature spoke to her right until the end.
