I have not been on here for a while as some of you know. On March 18th I lost my mother at the age of 93. She was my best friend,mentor and the reason I am what I am. I grew up with wildlife surrounding me. It was just a part of my every day life as a child. The best thing you can do for your children. I have done the same with mine. My mother was in a nursing home for the last few years with her cat Toffee. Her face glowed when I took my new photos in for her to see. In fact it became so popular that I ended up going in and doing slideshows for the residents once a month. They loved it. It just brought their lives back to the day,good old memories. Making them smile made me smile even more. Life is good!!! My work became even more special. Some of these shots are of her younger years in England where she was born. She had a wonderful life. She is greatly missed.
