Mother's Day wishes Maman, I miss you........

It's hard to believe it's been 7 years since I lost my best friend. I remember that Mother's Day when we met up in Chattanooga for the photography seminar, I came up from Atlanta and you drove down from Nashville. We had a wonderful photo seminar, taking nature pics, touring the Aquarium and then the madhouse lunch place on Mother's Day (the place was packed!!) and then you saw Michael at the restaurant. You were so surprised that he was in Chattanooga and he and I had planned that surprise all along. We had a wonderful weekend didn't we? I wish we could do another one, but that will only happen in my dreams now. Just know that I think of you every day, I miss you, and I love you.


A photo tribute:
