happy birthday



Lillian Krohnengold Singer

The top photo is of Mom at a street fair, probably in the early 1990s and the black & white shot was taken when she was pregnant with me in the late 1940s.

  1. Happy Birthday, Mom! She loved giving and getting gifts and cards and she would have been so pleased to get Daryl's blog 'card' and to read everyone's comments.

  6. There is always something very special about Mom! Nothing and no one can ever take her place.

    She was a beautiful woman, and I would guess she had a beautiful heart!

  9. Don't you love the way women posed for pictures back then? Every girl looked like a movie star or a pin-up. Pretty picture of your mother.

  13. Happy birthday in heaven Lillian!
    Your mom looks very familiar to me Daryl. Maybe it's from seeing your photo, but I don't think so. Was she ever in the movies?

  24. I love the last picture is that you are both in it, in a way. She definitely had style.

    Birthdays are hard. Everything is hard the first year, then it's easier, but MY birthday is still hard for me about my mom. I was distracted this year so it wasn't as bad, but I am guessing there will always be a little sadness on my birthday. It comes unexpectedly for me.
