©Terri GoldMom and Aunt Rita on my mothers wedding day, The Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NY 8/4/1946
My father had just returned from the pacific theater of World War 2. My mom is gone now but my fabulous Aunt Rita is still alive and well and the matriarch of the family.
I will spend Mothers Day with her and our family  including 12 great grand children.

Taken this past summer, this is my mom (67), helping her mother (93), my grandmother, walk and maintain balance.  Now, however, my grandmother  is mostly in a wheelchair and her brain continues to deteriorate from alzheimer’s.  My mother has put her life on hold to move to her parents, 1000 miles away, to continue to help them maintain balance ~ physically, mentally, and emotionally.

This image was taken on my first Mother’s Day. What started out as a
self-portrait, quickly turned into a mother/daughter session when my
daughter refused to be put down. I couldn’t imagine the image any
other way now

My Mom had an interesting, difficult life & died way too young. I think about her everyday since she died 30 years ago. Here she is at 21 looking beautiful & mysterious…wish I had known her then!

Molly was an unpettable cat who would bite when touched but who liked to be near people. My mother Helen, a true animal lover, provided a special chair for Molly so that they could watch TV together every evening without challenging Molly’s boundaries.

My mother is the heart and soul of our family.  Without her, we would be lost.

In my family it is my mother that keeps us together. She keeps us informed  of each other’s goings on lest we get so wrapped up in our own lives that we forget about each other.

To my mother, Katrine, who gave me a sense of self, 
a sense of humor, and the ability to love.
