My beloved mom died on March 25, 2013. She kept her sense of humor til the end. In one of her final days, in barely a whisper of a voice, she said, "The nurse will move me to the chair, then move me back to the bed, then give me some ice chips. I have a whole future ahead of me." I miss her every day. I took this photo of her in 1975 as one of my first experiments with my black and white darkroom that my mom helped me set up.
