I couldn’t help but think of my mother when I saw this week’s theme. She just died in December and she was so beloved by so many. In honor of Goldie Leiderman Nadler Katz, April 30, 1923 – December 15, 2017.
Mom n me at Mt. Vernon, 1988
At 15 with her father, 1938
Izzy and Goldie, 1940s

Most definitely meets the theme and all the photos show that loud and clear. Very nice, though sad the reason for choosing them.
agreed. thank you.
Toby, I am sorry for your loss. I truly love the picture of her with her father, all clad in overalls. I presume Izzy is your father. They make a nice couple. 93 years is quite the full life. I am glad you had her for so long in your life. Keith
Thanks Keith. She definitely had a full life and I’m glad I had her for so long even if it was hard to see her deteriorate the last several years because of dementia. You presume correctly. Izzy was my father. I had never seen the photo with her father until we were cleaning out her apartment nearly 3 years ago. It’s become one of my favorites as well. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. I appreciate it greatly.

Miss M is Goldie Junior!
he he, there’s definitely a resemblance! but I’m already Goldie Junior then Miss M is Goldie the 3rd :-) but then my mother looked like her mother too…..and so on and so on.
I’m so sorry for the loss of your mother, Toby. I would love to know more about her. Maybe I will find more about her when I read your more recent post. Hugs to you and your family. xx
Thanks so much Cathy. She was 94 and had dementia so I have been losing her a little at a time over the past several years. I’m planning to write more about her here on my blog but now it will be after her memorial this coming Saturday. I haven’t even put my post about my cat Eddie together yet. that one is coming as well. After I’m back! Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it. And thanks for the follow :)
I was following before under my other blogs, but I’m not always good about keeping up with my Reader. As this blog is under a different email address, I need to follow everyone all over again. Now I need to do better at keeping up on my Reader. :-)
I haven’t been very good at blogging in the last year or so (probably due to grief, both personal and our country….), so I know what you mean. After my daughter graduates I have plans to do more writing/blogging.
Sometimes we need to take a break, Toby, due to life! I’ll be looking out for new posts by you! :-)
