Danny: It's incredible that you know and appreciate your mother as you do, and that you can share not only your emotional "numb-out" but that you can name it and see it. As with your mother's (alleged) immaturity, your numb-out can't really be all that numb.

And by the way: I used to use that song from "Minnie's Boys" as an audition song. My voice couldn't do it justice; it's one of the all-time most moving Broadway tunes, in my limited experience. Thanks for bringing that out of your OCD treasure trove!

It always amazes me how people grade everyone all the time for being more or less mature, which is such a relative term!

A beautiful tribute to your mother, Danny. My heart was full of tears as I read it.

What a wonderful, touching entry. How fortunate you are to have such mementos of your mother! What a gift to pass down to your children and then to theirs. I understand what you mean about writing the painful tones of a lost parent - I seem to sink into that place easily. It takes a bit of work to turn it around, but when it happens, it is such a blessing. As this blog entry shows.

Danny, what a beautiful tribute to your beautiful mother. My mother, Min, was a knock-out, too, and died at the young age of 67. Although I have no mementoes of her youth, I did get back in touch with her through the writing of my memoir. She came alive in scenes and dialogues; and in my mind, has an opportunity to be seen once again as the gorgeous, blue-eyed, Dorothy Lamour lookalike I knew in my childhood.
Many thanks.

Oh, Danny, I am weeping with the beauty of this! Thank you for really reaching for the feelings you so gorgeously expressed here.

Danny,
I hope your mother is kvelling somewhere. This blog was superb!

I just want to add that this post is not only well written but visually beautifully designed (as so many of yours are), and that too is part of your tribute to your mother.

Dear Danny, as I read your memories of your
beloved Mom,I had to wipe the tears away so
I could read on, my fond memories of her was
Halloween. when she came to the house dressed
in her favorite costume, I could never understand how someone so beautiful could makeup to be an ugly witch. Lucky me, I knew
how good she was with makeup.
Danny, even if you do not remember me, more
important, I remember you and your family,
please know that my heartfelt feelings for
your pain is sincere.
My feelings about passing is just what it
says, passing from one life to another.
I hope you and your family will be blessed
with good health and happiness.
with fond memories,
Minnie Siegel

Hi Danny
I was doing a Google search on myself (to see how my website was doing)when I came across your blog on your mother, my namesake. She and I have much in common. I was born in 1939 and I'm Jewish. I have 3 children and 2 stepchildren (also had been divorced and remarried). Your photos of mom as a child were very much like photos of me and my sister growing up in San Francisco in the forties (and fifties).

I'm so sorry you lost your mom far too soon but I'd like to think my children will remember me as beautifully as you remember her when I am gone. I'm still quite healthy and young at 67 (almost 68) and I would be happy to hear from you if you choose to write me back.

Wow, this was sweet. Your mother sounds like a very wonderful person. I know you miss her, but she is at peace now, and happy, and you will see her again!

Your mother spent the last ten to fifteen years of her life with my Father, Roy Parker. Roy passed away four years ago, in his sleep in Florida. Your internet page was really heartwarming. Judy was a unique person indeed. I always appreciated the affection she showed to my children Joy & Kenny. May she rest in peace always.
