Everything in this picture, in a way, no longer exists. The bride, my mother, has been divorced for over 30 years, and my grandmothers (Feigie on the left and Aliza) have since passed away. But what remains is the only photo of the most amazing women all pictured together, the women who shaped my life and turned me into the woman I am today.
