Life is a Journey

March came in 1927 and onto the pages of history so did my mama, so inventive they named her Reta March!

I saw the name on the back of many old family photos and never thought about it when I still had her here with me - as to the spelling then or why and when they changed it. It was certainly before I was born for my dad insisted I be named for mama, which was Rita. I presume they may have misspelled it back then but now I’ll never know for sure. We should ask questions while we have parents with us.
