I have to smile when I see your mom's picture. She has very few pictures with her eyes open. I don't know why she always closed her eyes when the pictures were taken. I had forgotten how young your dad was....63 seems really, really young to me right now. It is a nice picture, and brought back a lot of memories about how your dad found out about his cancer and how good your mom was about 'correcting' the doctors on mis-diagnosis. She was always right on all the times (and there were quite a few) when she was the one that correctly diagnosed. I surely loved your mom and dad. Luvmyrle
