Remembering Mom!

My mom would have been 98 today. Mom was born Haldis Morken on January 3rd, 1912 in Bergen, Norway and was the first child of my grandfather Hans Michael Morken and my grandmother, Ragnfreid Emilie Hagelien. In one photo, mom is celebrating her birthday and in the other, she and her baby brother, Harold, are celebrating Sttende Mai, which is Norwegian Independence Day on May 17th. Mom's love, her words of encouragement and her aspirations and hopes for my success meant so much. As my mom would say so many times, "This is a very special day and it is love that brought us all together." How right she was!
