Hollis and her Mother, our dear Fran



Fran and Kate



Anthony, Hollis, and Aaron at his bar mitzvah


The last thing I told my Uncle David was that we were off Fran’s grandson’s bar mitzvah; he lit up with interest.  My Uncle was a huge supporter of Israel, and I think would have very much liked to rise up from his hospital bed to attend the bar mitzvah with us – I know Fran would have made room for him at the table.  What an honor it was to be present at Aaron’s special day.

Ernesto Adame
Ernesto and Kate met at work, and were instant friends.  She invited him to my 40th birthday bash, where we roasted a whole pig.  He and I had yet to meet, and unable to come, he nevertheless sent a present.  Ernesto gave me volume one and two of Los Panchos greatest hits, music I love, but of equal importance, he gave them to me in a Madeline gift bag – which I still have, and which Kate yearly places something in, for my birthday – which always reminds me of Ernesto – the man with the perfect taste!  



Marigold Marsh, second from the left, and a few members of her dear family
As a child, Marigold knew my Mother; as an adult, she spent years looking for my Mother, and finally found her on these pages, last year, when I wrote about my Mother on Mother’s Day!  




Our dear Joan’s!  Taken before they both moved away from us, but this is Joan Hayden’s birthday party, with Joan Williams, sitting at the other end of the table.  We miss them both dearly.


Pat and Mother, Fort Lauderdale, Florida — remarkable women!

Christine, Blanche and Peter.
Nour’s adorable nieces with their new baby brother. 



 Lori and Super Julie Bell
Kate and Julie grew up on the same street in Ohio, and reconnected in Florida, thanks to their father’s.  When preparing to meet Julie, I asked about her, and was told that she quite literally super human — the best at absolutely everything!   Julie has lived up to her reputation, and we have found Lori to be equally super.



Melody McCormick, in Northern Ireland, leading a Habitat for Humanity trip to Belfast, where they helped to build these red brick homes, in the community of Iris Close.  



Our dear friend and neighbor Nour, with his Uncle Alex, in our home, at Christmas, in 2008.  




My Mother, Rev. Stella Lucille Cooper Mosqueda, in her youth. 
She has been the subject of many of my articles.  




Tom and Ruth McCormick, as well as Phil Needleman, celebrating Kate’s Masters, in 2006.  
We have since lost both Tom and Phil, our dear friends and neighbors,
but their lives continue to inspire and our memories of them will lives with us all.  



One of my favorite pictures with Phil



Kate Scarcella and Helen Patton. 
My Aunt Helen who was a ‘snowbird’ spending winters in Florida, and the rest of the year in Ohio, told Kate and me, that she had always wanted to go to the Kennedy Space Center, which she yearly passed, on her way between homes.  She and Uncle Paul, had never made it there, so Kate and I decided to take her, in 1992.
