2008 year in Review (part one)

It's 2009 and I haven't posted in over a year so I'm going to make a ginormus post summarizing all of 2008.
From here on my resolution is to stay fit and caught up in my life.
January 3rd set the stage for the entire year when my beloved mom died of renal cancer.
We are a very close family and this was an overwhelming emotional roller coaster that changed my perspective on life and mortality in a good way.
I created a video tribute with the generous help of my friend and graphic designer Rhonda Moore.
The first image is of mom and her triple trouble in 1963 (me on far left) and 42 years later was our last "nice" group shot in 2005. The last image was the announcement for her services.




After the service we had the most incredible "Celebration of Life" reception hosted by my friend Jennifer Carlsson of Cigi's Waterfront.
A day that began with tears, ended with laughter and fond memories of my moms wonderful life.
I miss you mom.
