Audrey Pankhurst, 1927-2008

Today marks the fourth anniversary of my mother passing.

I find there isn’t much I can (or wish to) say here about my mother. She taught me to strive to be good, no matter what others try and do. She was a voracious reader (part of the reason I felt she should be the namesake of the Braille Reader/Refreshable Display). She was a kind person, and she is missed.

Here’s a picture of her, taken about four years before the end.

It’s a day she was out with her daughter and her grandchildren, who she loved. It’s one of my favorites, because it shows her joy, despite crippling arthritis.

My sister Maureen kindly agreed to let me use this photo for the project – while I haven’t figured exactly how best to use it, I am leaning towards an artistic rendering, like this:

Or this:

In any case, it seems appropriate on this day to let all my readers know about who the ‘Audrey’ Braille machine is named after – and why.
