My mom

Today is my mother's birthday. She was born on April 17, 1918 and if she was alive would be 90 year's old today. Her Name was Lena Mae Wells LeGrand. She was born in Beaumont but spent most of her childhood in the Rio Grande Valley. I have included a picture of her as a child holding a cat. I remember that she always loved cats which is something I must have gotten from her. She was also a wonderful seamstress and made all of the dresses in the family picture. She loved to sew and would usually be doing that when I got home from school each day. I also remember her singing. One song I always associate with her is Que Sera Sera. She sang that song to me when I was really young. I have always loved the movie The Man Who Knew Too Much because Doris Day sings that song to her son in the movie. She died of ovarian cancer on March 1, 1965 and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her.
