A Farewell Retrospective

Howdy folks, I am back.  I’ve been away from the blog for a little while due a confluence of personal and technical challenges. As many of you know my mom, Patricia J. Segal passed away suddenly, but not unexpectedly on the 7th of August.  She had been fighting some health problems for several years, but stayed amazingly sharp to the very end.  She went out like she lived, on her own terms.  She was at peace with herself, her family and her faith. So this blog is just going to provide a bit of retrospective on the images of her life. She was a neurosurgical nurse, a bridge player, and an adventurous traveler.  We moved like gypsies back and forth across the United States and around the world. As my Dad was deployed most of the time until I was 10 or so, it was Mom, who set the tone for my sister and me. We owe her more than we ever could say or repay. 

 

 

 

Her favorite photo

 

I didn’t take most of the early ones—those are mostly my Dads.  I regret that since Nikon stopped supporting their film scanner, my progress on digitizing the thousands of slides has ground to a halt.  One of the things I am going to do is finish that process.  OK, next time back to photoblogging.  Sign up for the World-wide photowalk!
