My mother died on 31 August 2016.
She was 91. For some time prior to that, she was in hospital near her home in Virginia, and I telephoned with her almost daily. At her age she was not adept at Skype or social media with their passwords, and I was only able to transmit images to her via this website, that was at the time under construction. I took the picture of her above at her home a couple of weeks before she died. Although we had a terribly conflictual relationship, I cared very much about her, and I leave the blog posts below as memento.
