HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM
April 10, 2008
Today is my mother's birthday. Had she lived, Polly Spiegel Cowan would be 95 years old today. She died when she was a mere 63, but she lives on in the hearts of those who loved her.

My grandmother, Lena Straus Spiegel.
It's Lena's birthday too, after all. On this day in 1913 she gave birth to the last of her four children.
And finally, a picture of Polly Spiegel Cowan and little Liza Cowan. I wouldn't be here if Polly hadn't been born.
