In Remembrance



Today's digital collage is in memory of my Dad, Harry London, who died two years ago today. The background is a copy of a 1907 postcard written in Yiddish from his mother in Russia to his father in the U.S., before she joined him here to be married. The large photo on the left is one of my favorite photos of Dad-- he was happily enjoying his bagel and lox at a family brunch. The red heart image underneath this photo is from an unfinished scrapbook my Mom kept shortly after my parents were married, that I found after Dad died. (I was amazed to see how similar my creative style is to hers.) The upper right photo is of Dad holding me and my twin sister Ilene as babies (don't ask me which is which!); and the lower right photo is of Dad with his grandsons Ryan, Brent, and Jonathan; and my brother Bob.
