A Tribute to My Mom

Today is my Mom’s birthday.  She would be 69 years of age if she was still with us.  She was born Caroline Elbert, on 21 August 1940 in New York City, and died on 11 January 2007 in Dyer, Indiana.  She married my dad, Richard Livingston (1939-2005), on 19 September 1964.  She was with us for too short a time.  Happy birthday, Mom; we miss you!
