Son: Patrick Mahoney
The reason Piper loved it: Another favorite photo was sent to me by a son of his mother's sixth wedding. (You don't see that very often.) He remembers picking out her outfit beforehand. She's since passed away, so sending me this picture was his way of giving her a loving tribute.
