Grandma Marie wrote "Counting the Stars" on the back of this portrait of Mom, taken after she moved to Akron to make airplanes during World War II. Mom was happy, capable and earning a living while fulfilling a patriotic duty.
This page is for Mom on her 89th birthday. Her health and Dad's health are deteriorating. She is still beautiful. I hope that she's still counting the stars, where her Mom & Dad, Step-Dad, brother, sister and friends are watching over her and Dad.
