In My Mother's Memory

My mother Rolayne Kapelner passed away September 29, 2015. She was born April 20, 1927.

Overseeing her welfare, & medical care these past three and a half plus years has been a journey of twists, turns, ups & downs. She was an immensely talented, strong willed woman, who possessed  a zest for life I have never seen before. She was my first love, & first teacher.

Her family & dear friends gathered this past October 2nd with deep sadness, & love for a dignified, & respectful funeral befitting our mother, a grandmother, aunt & friend, and so much more.

She was a cutting edge ground breaking woman born truly before her time. Once the acute sadness abates in time there will be a clearer perspective of what her life, & influences will continue to mean to me one of her children, & only daughter.

Oh Cheryl, I am so very sorry to hear of your mom's loss. I"m not sure what led me to your blog this morning, but I'm glad I stopped by. Your life is a tribute to your mom and I know you'll never regret all you've done her for these past years. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Steve.
