Cecile Rozel Coffin was both 22 June 1910 in Topeka, Kansas, and died 3 June 2006 in Eugene Oregon. She was a lovely woman, kind and gracious, much loved by family and friends, very bright, a little shy, and overly sensitive. She was a wonderful mother, though I was never able to convince her of that, no matter what I said. Cecile was never satisfied with Cecile. I loved her dearly, of course, and miss her every day. Here are a few of my favorite photos of her.

The two of us spent a wonderful three weeks together in Amsterdam and London.

And to all the mothers in my life, bless you. You are deserving of only the best. Happy Mother's day!
