My Mother, Blanca Josephine Skidgel

Sitting on my mother’s lap. My brothers Tony and Herbie sit on either side.

My mom passed away last Friday on October 7. While it was clear she didn’t have much time, I remained optimistic, and that’s made it hard accepting her death. There are many moments we won’t be able to share with her. Despite this all, I am incredibly lucky to have been her son and I owe so much to her.
