This is a pretty sad Mother’s Day for me. All of my mothers are gone.
On the top row on the right is my Great-grandmother, Katie Bell Rembert (nee Finley). On the left is her daughter, my grandmother, Anna Ree Tidmore (nee Larkin). On the left in the second row is my mother, Marjorie T Bradford (nee Tidmore). I’ll let you guess who that little yellow child is.
Kate died when I was about three years old, well into her 70’s (possibly 80’s). My mother died 9 years ago, but it still really feels like yesterday for me. My grandmother died April 13th of this year at 89.
Not pictured is my father’s mother, also no longer with me. She died when I was around 9 or 10.
This year I get to remember them instead of sending flowers. So it goes.
