"Memories of Momma" — A 71 Day Photo Tribute (Day 19)



The year was 1973, and Momma was 24 years old. Here she is at Castile Manor with her poodle puppy, Pepe. (More later on Castile Manor.)

She looks like she's fresh off the Parisian runway. I'm sure her dress was all the rage back in the bold and daring 1970s, and she's dynamite in her tall-as-a-skyscraper hair. Love her! 

*It's Day 19 of my 71 day photo series in honor of my dear sweet Momma who passed away on 03.21.2016 after a harrowing 71 day health battle. Those 71 days do not define her. Oh no. What defines her — and me — are the incredible 66 years that she lived her life. I hope you enjoy these snapshots of the beautiful moments and memories of her life.
