This is in dedication to the number two person in my life. My mother will always be my beacon, but since she is thankfully still alive, my number two influence on this Day of the Dead celebration is Ruth, my grandmother.
Ruth was remarkable to me because she lived a life of privilege, yet always taught me to be kind to everyone, no matter their creed, color or social status. She loved to travel, wear her furs to the grocery store and had lovely jewelry that I still wear to this day.
On day 305 of Photo 365 I wish my grandma could have known me now, as an adult. But I’ll cherish her memory forever.
