is xmas tomorrow?
Phyllis Eccles Pembleton was born in London, England on July 11, 1909 before she passed away Phyllis was living in a Adult Family Home in Bellevue WA called The Willow Care Home. Although pretty lucid right up to the end she did suffer from dementia and would frequently ask "Is it Christmas Tomorrow?" Upon hearing her story from Duke Lee her grandson I wrote a song. A few months after that on January 26, 2001 Mrs Pembleton passed. Soon after her son Arthur started a project documenting the travels of his mother's ashes. http://www.thedeadmommadatabase.com/ One of the places he visited with Momma was Chicago. His documentary journey inspired me to put together this cd paying tribute to her memory.
