A Dozen Years

I estimate that my late parents’ care-giving needs and legal concerns have taken and will continue to consume well over a dozen of my own last years of life. These family photographs reveal that I aged horribly in the five years from 2009 to 2014. At least I have the loving memories.

Today is Easter and I have no one to buy Easter Baskets for...

Father was enthusiastic about holiday festivities of all sorts.

When we were children, Mother used to particularly enjoy dying Easter eggs.

(Mother would often change clothing so that hers

matched mine as closely as possible.)

(Father would often stand until everyone,

or at least mother was seated at the table.)
