My mother with Teta in 1983

I remember Teta, my mother's aunt, ('Teta' is 'aunt' in Czech), as a gentle, affectionate lady. I like that my mother looks happy in this photo. I think 1983 was a good year for both of us. I'd graduated from college, had proven myself at my job, and communication was good with my mother. This must have been a favorite photo of my mother's, for after her death, I found it in her things, placed in a pretty frame decorated with swans.

You can see it in this photo...
