Remembering my Mom

Tomorrow would be my mom’s (Deborah Carley Emory) 81st birthday.  I love this photo of her from 1943 (age 9) and her brother Wayne H. Carley Jr. (age 11).  The photo was taken in their home at 48 Commonwealth Avenue in Pittsfield, MA.  The rocking chair (known as Grandpa’s chair) was a fixture in the house that I remember (37 Valentine Rd., Pittsfield, MA) where my grandparents lived from 1960 until my grandfather passed away in 2002 at the age of 98.  The chair was sold to the couple that bought the house in 2002, and hopefully still remains.
