You, of course, have my thoughts and prayers, Val. No wonder you were SUCH a devoted daughter, and still are.

This is perhaps the most beautiful tribute to a loved one who has "walked on" that I have seen.

The photo is remarkable, as always Val.

Oh, Val, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Your tribute to your Mom brought tears to my eloquent...just like your beautiful image. I'm sure she was equally eloquent, a wonderful mother, and a beautiful person. I'm glad you have such cherished memories together and I know you will think of her every time you shoot those "little things". Glad to have you back, you were sorely missed. All my best, my friend.

I was trying to catch up tonight and came along this beautiful photo with such a wonderful heartfelt tribute. Moms are special, one of the toughest losses when they leave us. I lost my mom 20yrs ago and there are times when I would just like ask the simplest thing like how she made a certain recipe. So many little things will trigger memories of her.
Your mom was very special and blessed you with an amazing talent. I know you'll continue to make her proud sharing your incredible gifts with us.
(((Hugs)) Mary
