Bow and Arrow

To my mom Sue Willis Lacy Riggins,
Gorgeous. Loving. Talented. Funny. She doesn't recognize me now, because of the ravages of Alzheimer's, but she will always be that glamorous Mommy who painted her nails standing up, always carried linen hankerchiefs in a snappy little cocktail bag, always wore red lipstick, even while hanging laundry outside to dry with 4 little kids under her feet. No one could rock the black cocktail dress or roll her jeans up to wade in a creek like Mom. Men adored her and women admired her because she was such a wonderful, wonderful woman.
