My dear friend Matty, who left Memphis in 1912 as a mail order bride and came to California (some great stories there) enjoys lunch at the Smoke House restaurant in Toluca Lake, CA with my Mom, Marianne and my Dad.
My Mom, a first class lady, who, for over 50 years helped with and led charity events and organizations, and loved people, passed away this year after a struggle with Alzheimer's. We figure she's busy playing cards and organizing dinners and parties, now free of pain.
A personal thank you to Kari Lugo and the 'Rock-A-Hula' girls for putting on an Alzheimer's benefit during Elvis Week in Memphis in 2007 and to Darwin for taking part to support it.
My Mom and Dad started dating 70 years ago, who took the time to become best friends, lovers, partners and each others biggest fan.
