My mom took this photo of herself. I found it on her cell phone about two weeks after her death. It’s terribly blurry. I don’t know if she was playing with the camera and took the photo by accident or if she was trying to learn how to use the new phone or what.

I can’t ask her now, so I’ll never know.

When I charged her phone, I saw that her background had been set to a picture of me and my son. We were sitting in bed wearing Gator shirts and watching football. I wonder how many times she opened the flip phone and saw that photo of her son and her grandson and smiled.
