This picture is one that is bittersweet to me. It was my mother's 60th birthday dinner and Charlie and I surprised her with the one thing she had always wanted, a brilliant pair of diamond earrings. That’s the sweet part. You are looking at the moment she opened the box and realized what it was. She sobbed for hours.
The bitter part of this picture is because this was one of the last happy moments she had in her life as she found out a few days later that she had cancer and 10 months later she died.
