Isn't She Lovely?

In preparation for my mother's memorial service, my niece A and I spent hours going through family photos, looking for pictures of my mom. (Niece A wanted to make some photo collages for the reception.)

Since I don't take after my Mom facially (in fact my baby pictures look exactly like my Dad in a dress), I can say without reservation that she was a knockout. No wonder Dad fell for her.


Today is Mom's memorial service. All my siblings are here, and most of my nieces and nephews. A sad and happy day.

Goodbye, Mom. I love you.

  2. She was very lovely!! And she must have been as lovely inside as well to have raised someone as kind and generous as you. :)

    I'm think of you, too, and praying.

  7. Thinking of you today, it will seem like forever, but hopefully people will share stories about your Mom and you'll hear stories you didn't know and laugh at the funny parts and cry at the sad ones.

  8. Sue, yes, she is lovely. Stunning, in fact.

    The silver lining to memorial services is seeing family and friends. I'm so glad all your siblings are there. Keeping you all in my prayers.
