Mom is barely visible in the edge of the photo. Mom had a difficult time during Danny's birth, I was always told that the priest had even given her last rites, they were that afraid for her. She had to wear a back brace for months after that, and occasionally during the years after. She loved him so much, in part because of this, I'm sure, and in part because he was such a cute kid, so full of mischief!
