Star Turn

20140729125019_00001It’s not everyone whose story wins an Emmy.

And while Mom doesn’t remember everything these days, she perked up when I told her she had won an award. “Yay!” she yelled, raising her arms in triumph.

This painting of a sunflower seems to capture her attitude perfectly.

Today John Sharify, the writer and producer of the story “I’m Still Here” was gracious enough to present the Emmy to Mom and me. Joining us in the photo is her sister Louise and cousin Frank.

Thank you John for telling Mom’s story so beautifully.
