Lila the first, Lila the third

I can't tell you how touched and pleased I was when Katie and Derek chose to name their baby Lila.
My mom, Lila Caroline Selstrom Dietz, was such an extraordinary person, and most of what I am today I owe to her love and nurturing.  There isn't a day since she died in 1974 that I haven't missed her.  
Here are some portraits from her glamour days.  I didn't know her then, but often wished I had.

Here's her beautiful namesake on the birthday they share, August 9th.
