These are my 2 moms, Both pictures taken in 1968.

Mother, top, is Leona C., with us, her 3 adopted children. 

She was about 43 years old then. 

This is typical of my mom- delighted by my antics. 

My mom completely nurtured and supported all my creativity.

Leona died 5 years ago after suffering a long time from Alzheimer’s disease.

Mother hiking is Prairie E. 

She had me, unmarried at 20, and gave me up. 

Here she is at 22.     I met her when I was 20.

She gave me the sound of my voice, and ‘talent' 

(whatever you think that is). 

Prairie is a mom to me now and a granny to my daughters.

I love you Moms, thank you.
