More than 100 people signed the guest register for the open house event yesterday to celebrate my mother's life. I took my camera, but I was far too busy to take any photos. I saw and talked to people there that I hadn't seen in 40 or 50 years — many of them of my generation, many of my mother's. It was much too exciting, moving, and rewarding for me to be able to write about it so soon. I have two days left here to get ready to go back to France on Tuesday.
