Anita De La O


This is a photo of my mother from the mid to late 1960's. i'm guessing she's about 38 in this photo. My mother is 86 now and living in a home. She has to have care and supervision at all times. Jeri and I visit her, take her to dinner or lunch and spend some time with her but it is difficult. She is not the same anymore.

She talks about my father a lot. She misses him now more than ever. She just wants to be with him. I say to her "Mom, it's not up to you. It's up to God!" her body and mind are frail now. She's tired.

When she was young she was always on top of the styles. She had her own dress shop at one time "Ann's Dress Shop. This is still how I see her in my minds eye.

Keep my mother in your prayers.
