We had the chance this month to spend some time with my mother-in-law Ruth.
She is 92 years old and still relatively healthy and mobile.
She has lost much weight in the last few months which may be a sign that something is not right. Vital organs are slowing up and/or breaking down, so this visit was even more special.
Growing up in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, a nearby "vacation" spot was Atlantic City.
Here she is as a young woman, second on the left, with her sister on her left and two friends, walking the boardwalk.
There have been many good years in Ruth's life and there is always a reason to celebrate life.
Here she is reading to one of the youngest Great-grandchildren, William, 3 years old.
