My mother, on the right, was a good student, played the piano, was proud of being a gymnast. She went off to SMU at the age of 16.
This is my favorite picture of my mother.
She had done an amazing job of
"leaving her mark"
*She was mother to four children
*She worked throughout most of her married life
at several universities, primarily at Texas A&M University.
*She traveled and lived abroad with my father in Syria, Iran and even eight years in Africa.
*She published two books pertaining to Italian history and genealogy.
*She wrote and illustrated cookbooks for fundraisers as well as for her family.
She had so many more accomplishments.
Most of all she was a loving wife, mother and grandmother.
I truly miss her.
She would have been 86 years old January 3rd.
Happy Birthday, Mother!
