This past weekend would have been my mother's 76th birthday ~ August 8. My mom died when I was 7 years old...she was one of those unfortunate souls who was stricken with breast cancer before there were any remedies for the sickness.
Here is a picture of my mom back when she graduated from High School...my mom went on to marry her high school sweetheart...the sweetest guy on earth, my dad, Burl. This past month, we Miss Spenser and I were thrilled to learn that one of our guests visiting the tea room was actually a classmate of my parents. She told us that it was very apparent that they were "in love...for when you saw one, you'd see the other." It was very endearing to hear these words.
