Sophia Loren and Spock

Mom and Dad.

When my older sister's friend told my mom that she looked just like Sophia Loren, my mom spit her coffee in a fit of laughter. 

Mom played the piano and organ at church and my dad sang bass in the choir (in addition to teaching Sunday School, being a deacon, and chairman of the building committee).  Kids at church would tell me that my dad reminded them of Spock or Abraham LIncoln.  I never knew what to say... "Thank you?"  I usually just said, "I love my dad."

Kids at school would stare at my mom.  She was beautiful, a "hot mom" before they had a term for it I guess, but not in the way that she was trying too hard, or age-inappropriate, or showing too much.  She was... she is... graceful, elegant.  This is one of those rare, rare times I don't think a photo tells enough of the story because the walk, the gesture, the beautiful way a person moves isn't captured.  The following photos were taken at my dad's 80th birthday in May of 2010.  Mom had hers in September.  Indulge me, I think they are still beautiful!
