My mom died last Monday, after a very long disease. She was 83. All the health personal and helpers took great care of her till the end. I saw her only a few hours before her death, I think she recognized me once again, but as she started to suffer she was given some morphin, so she left in her sleep.
She will be cremated on Monday, Oct.26 at Valenton at 10am, then her urn will join my father's in our family grave at the Old Cemetery of Charenton-le-Pont.
Her dear cat Pomponnet is with us now.
This portrait is of course an old one ; my Dad made it, in 1947 or 1948 I think, when they were a young couple. That's my favourite, as it was theirs.
