One of many treasures

35 years ago today Caroline became a mother when she gave birth to her oldest son, Brian. He wrote this e-mail to us today:

I have had some moments over the last 2 months, as I know we all have, where I really miss mom. This morning was one of those mornings. 35 years ago, mom gave me the most precious gift she could give. She will forever be my mom. 35 cheers for mom and all the many motherly gifts she gave all of us.

While going through my Moms things I found a drawer stuffed with all of the cards she received from her family over the last 10 years. There were only a few things from when we were little kiddos but they are so special. Here is one of those treasures typed on our old typewriter.

Happy Birthday Brian!

Funeral Pictures - Viewing

We were so blessed to have the talented Amelia of Amelia Lyon Photography take pictures of my Mom's funeral. The pictures are amazing and moving! Maybe I'm biased but there was a very special feeling at my Mom's funeral and I'm glad that its reflected in the pictures. I want to share so many that I'm going to break them up over the next few days. I hope you enjoy them!
