Born November 12th, 1924 in the humblest of surroundings.
Helen Irene Dorsey
She had a smile and laugh that would light up the world.
Fiercely loyal to family and loved ones.
More heartache than one woman should have to endure.
To honor my mother today, I curled my hair. She always set her hair in rollers, and wore a white scarf. I have that scarf, and I wore it today. I baked two Lemon Meringue pies. Her favorite. I thought about her all day, trying to find her in my face, my hands, my life.
