Frances at 98.6

Frances at 98.6

Los Angeles, California. This was taken at lunch on my last trip to LA three weeks ago. I’ll be there again this sunday for her 99th birthday. She’s definitely fading; dementia is setting in, but at this age I’m glad she still knows me. Marta (her helper) and I think she consciously chooses to tune in and out of conversations, using dementia as a resting place to fall back on.
