Birthday Memories

In memory of Lucy Porrazzo Combattente
May 9, 1904 - November 30,

Soft sunshine. Soft breezes. A day in May. Scented with new grass and fresh blooms. Filled with bird song. The month of her birthday. Lucy. Lucia. Latin in origin, meaning light. Named after a saint.

the stray cat with yellow eyes
waits for her

Thanks for stopping by, Warren. She was more than a friend; she was my Mom. A great lady and an inspiration.
