Happy Birthday, Mom!

It's been nearly 17 years since Mom left the planet. Here are a few photos of her in her younger days. I kind of like the celebratory mood in each, almost as if she were getting ready to go to her birthday party in each picture, and celebrating with her grandchildren in the last one.
