Back in January Mario's family held a birthday celebration in honor of his grandmother, who means more to him that just that. I took way too many photos that day but lost the charger to my DSLR soon after. I finally got another charger and was able to share the photos with him and his family.
His grandmother, whom they all call "Mother", turned 90 YEARS old this year...
The thoughts I posted on that special day via FB: "Mario’s grandmother, “Mother”, is celebrating her 90th birthday today! I pray I live that long, traveling here and there, in my right mind, with a body that hasn't failed me yet, full of wisdom and love, and a praying spirit that’s on fire for God just like her!!!"
