Kathie Gagne, walking in Westwood with her son and grandson

A few months after my son was born, my little sister heroically managed to get herself and mom here to Los Angeles. She flew from Seattle to Florida, got my mom, and then flew with her here. I can never thank her enough for that. I can’t remember ever seeing my mom as giddy as she was when she got to hold her first grandchild for the first time.

My sister took this photo of us on a walk around our neighborhood.
