About This Artwork: My mother passed away not even a year after my dad did, and she passed away on what would have been their 46th wedding anniversary. It really was like my dad had waited around for her until she was ready to go so they could go up to Heaven together, and I don't even believe in Heaven. It was so sad, yet so sweet and romantic in many ways.
