Ma

My mother died ten years ago. The world lost not just a devoted nurse, a mother of five, a lover of the arts, but one of the sweetest people you'd ever want to meet. I saw many films with her over the years, and it's so sad to think she'll never see another one with me again. From the time I was little we'd go to some that my baseball addict father wasn't interested in.

During later years when I took her to clinics as her health declined, we'd still go to many. Here are (most of) those we attended in theatres. I'm probably forgetting a few here and there, but my memory overall is pretty sharp in this department.…
