My mother, Patricia Strickland, died at home in San Luis Obispo last Thursday evening at the age of 75. An aggressive brain tumor killed her quickly, gently and fairly peacefully. Her four children have been doing a lot of crying, and we'll be joining each other this week to spread her ashes at her favorite beach in the world.
The photo above is from three weeks ago when she was taken out to lunch by Jack Watson, an old friend from Redondo Beach High School days. Goodbye, mom.
Update: My niece Katie put up a nice blogsite with photos which you can get to by clicking here.
