Don - I'm so very sorry for the loss of your mother!

She has a wonderful face, and lovely smile -- I'll give it a try, and I'm sure that others here that come to this thread will also give you a hand.

Very sorry about the loss of your mother.
I worked on the photo you uploaded. Smoothed the grain in her face a bit, then just some minor color correction.

Don - I softened the grain and took a few years off.

I replaced the inadequate Red channel with a copy of the Lightness channel from a duplicate changed into LAB mode, used Dust/Scratches to soften the grain and reduce wrinkles around her eyes (may be too much, but I'd bet she wouldn't mind). Reduced cyan cast to skin. Darkened/colored to expand her lips, emphasized her teeth a bit, and darkened her pupils/lightened her eye whites.

Don, what a beautiful woman your Mother was. You must feel blessed to have been her son.

My prayers are with you.
