Five Years Ago

It's been 5 years since Mom died.
 We gathered for a picnic at the cemetery. 

We shared memories and favorite things about Mom & Grandma Kathy.

We put a wreath together with pictures of all of Mom's family on it.

Then we wrote messages on the Red & Yellow Balloons ...

... & sent them to heaven.

Just FYI: I still hate having my mom in heaven...

I am glad you keep this tradition going year after year. It will be one of those things that preserves your mom's memory. Even for those who never got to meet her. They will all know how special she was and how much her presence is missed. Love the bright colored balloons. Love the chance for words and thoughts to be shared and written. Love that visits with your mom are such a celebration and an act of keeping the connection with her strong. All of those little kiddos are growing up so fast, too. I can't believe how grown up all of the cousins are now. Amazing.
