|1975ish - the year I was born.|
I can never complain about my childhood. My Mom was a tough lady - being German, living through World War II, and carrying her heritage proudly wrapped around her. She became an American citizen in 1967 and loved her new country more than anything. It was a defining moment for her.
|The day Mom became an American.|
Mom and Dad loved each other tremendously and stuck it out through many hard times.
|Note from my Dad to my Mom. He was in the Army for over 26 years.|
|Mom and Sam.|
|Mom and Harlow|
I love you, Mom.
