Having just spent a week in near-zero temperatures, I'm smiling, just remembering the warm hospitality at Seven Stars Resort.

Love Never Dies | A tribute to children's author and editor Charlotte Zolotow; her talented daughter, Crescent Dragonwagon and a remarkable team of caregivers.

Crescent was working in Arkansas when her mom passed away last week. Saturday morning, I attended a morning memorial service for one of my own friends, a colleague who had passed away unexpectedly. Until then, I had never been close to human ashes -- much less held them in a ladle and tried to speak coherently. By afternoon, I was pretty much toast.

As part of two-handed grieving/celebrating, I used pictures from Crescent's Facebook posts during the past year to create a compilation video to honor her final days with her mom.

Crescent's mom, Charlotte, was a prolific children's author; her father, a celebrity biographer. The illustrations in the video are from Charlotte's books. Having followed in her parents' footsteps, Crescent is an award-winning writer with over 50 published books.

The young man in the video was Crescent's husband, Ned, who was tragically killed while riding a bicycle. The older man is David, Crescent's current life partner. The smiling beauty in orange is Hawa, one of Charlotte's primary caregivers. Although she spoke four languages when she arrived in the U.S., Hawa could not read English until Crescent raised money to hire a tutor. Now, Hawa reads prolifically and has her own Facebook page. The cat is Tumbleweed, Charlotte's faithful companion.

I've never cooked a turkey. Yesterday was no exception, thanks to Jesse's Restaurant in Magnolia Springs, Ala.

Becky Bingham until 1991.
While visiting Orange Beach, we called on a Friday afternoon at 5:23 to ask an employee to clarify directions to the store, which were obviously incorrect on our GPS. "We're closed," she said abruptly. "Really?" I replied. "Your web site says you're open until 6pm on Friday." "Nope, 5:30," she answered. "And because of the holiday weekend (Thanksgiving), we're closing early." So we went to the US Post Office the next morning to spend our $32.
