A Moment of Silence

Back in 1963, November 22nd fell on a Friday;
Thanksgiving fell six days later on Thursday, the 28th.
This year, Thanksgiving coincides with the 55th anniversary
of JFK's tragic, untimely death on November 22, 1963,
as recorded on this very sad page
from the back of my grandmother's date book:

My Grandmother
Rovilla Heidemann Lindsey
October 8, 1891 - June 14, 1966
a few years after she wrote the above note
Studio portrait taken in 1965,
a year before she died from breast cancer
