Mom came from Denmark just before WWII.
Met my dad in Miami Florida..
Married in 1945..
I was born in 1953...my sister in 1956.
We lived for over 25 years a block or two from the New Jersey Shore.
Flag Day meant Strawberries...and celebrating her birthday.
Many years it went by with little or no fanfare...
except for the strawberries.
1956-57 I believe.
My dad loved doing self portraits..
Happy Birthday Mom..in Heaven.
Miss you and dad both.
