For those of you who knew my Mother, Yvonne, a very special soul who loved Estrella dearly, you need to know that she has left us behind. She passed away very quietly last week, just before the Royal Wedding that she anticipated so sweetly. The next day, the photo book I had made of her visit with us, just two short weeks ago, arrived. Her face was so delighted to be sitting by our pool, warming by our bonfire, enjoying our shrimp at Lety’s and Mariscos ISSA. Too short… too short.
