This was my mother's last birthday celebration before she passed away on October 26, 2011. The United Methodist church where she had been organist and member since she was 26 years old gave her a celebration, July 17, 2011 on the day before her 102nd birthday. I wanted to preserve this memory and asked her to stand next to the cake so that I could shoot a picture of this special time in her life because as we know sometimes we don't always get another opportunity to shoot a memory such as this.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!

    Such a beautiful cake and an excellent entry for the challenge! Your Mother looked much younger than her years, this is a beautiful photo of her and a wonderful keepsake.

    Thank you for the kind words....Yes, my mother did look good for her age and I am so glad that
    I shot this picture of her standing next to the cake in honor of her 102nd birthday.

    I am sorry to hear of your Mom passing away Barbara...I remember how close you were to
    her... it is never easy to lose our parents ...They certainly live in our hearts and memory..I like to remember my mother when she still enjoyed life and was actively involved with so many of her projects...Most of all I miss our conversations of mother and daughter talk!
