The Multnomah Meeting's Peace & Social Concerns Committee arranged for this event.
We had a potluck downstairs, then adjourned to the upstairs worship room for singing and stories told by Carol Urner, my mom, about her life.
Lew Scholl recorded the whole thing on his cell phone, picking up audio over the meetinghouse sound system. Rhys sat to Carol's right to help keep her on track. I took pictures.
Carol is currently preparing for her move south to Whittier where she lives with my sister Julie. Last night she took me out to Japanese food at Maru. We had the new biography of Eleanor Roosevelt, a chief topic of conversation.
