My mom, Dorothy, has been gone now for 18 years and I still miss her. When I stopped at my Dad’s house the other day I was intrigued when he handed me a small envelope. In it were two very small photos of my mom (each about 2″ x 4″) at approximately 18 years old which were sent by the son of my mom’s best high school friend, a woman who has also been gone for over a decade.
Since my Dad had other stuff for me to scan, I stopped back on Saturday with my laptop and scanner. Though the dynamic range isn’t great with the scanner, I was able to scan those small photos at 600dpi and to a size suitable for printing at 8″ x 10″. I made copies of each for my sisters and my Dad.
It is so fun to see her as a young, full-of-life woman who has her whole life ahead of her. Love you mom.
