My mom moved into the Veterans Center in Homelake, Colorado after living in NY for nearly 84 years.  For several years since I placed my mom into the VA center, I have been photographing her and the surrounding Colorado, New Mexico landscapes.  My mom was happy to reunite with her friend Richard, who she meet in the 1930's.  He was friends with my dad and now that my dad has passed, she has great comfort being with a good friend in a loving environment at the VA Center, Homelake.  Tax dollars well spent.
