furthermore ...



Mom
1966



todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I can stay sober as long as I wish

that yesterday was a fairly peaceful day, although it was extremely busy

that I'll make the final preparations for Mom's Memorial Service; if you'd care to join us tomorrow, let me know

for gravity. It keeps me grounded.

for Lambda. It keeps me centered.

for stairways that keep me using the steps.

God helps those who persevere.
-The Qur'an

Your Mom is beautiful, both in yesterday's photo, and today's 1966 picture.

She looks So much like my wife Anna, also beautiful. I showed her today, and she agreed...

I'll be there with you although you will not see me.
