Memories

This weekend would have been my mother-in-law’s 80th birthday.  And we were all wishing she was still here with us to celebrate. 

Grizz’s sister thought it would be nice for her children to gather together in her honor (because she passed away at such a young age, her grandchildren never knew her) – so six of us met to ‘remember Mom’.

We gathered at the cemetery, did a little clean-up, and placed some fresh flowers025

 

Balloons were often part of celebrations, so we brought some of those along023

 

And released them as we all wished her a Happy Birthday, confident that she was watching, so proud and happy with her family

 

It was too cold to stand around outside, so we went to the parents’ favorite eatery to do our reminiscing030

 

Happy Birthday Mom
