In Memorium - 160

We gathered to say our final goodbyes - friends and family.
Tears were shed and happy memories
were shared by all.
She is missed but lives always in our hearts.

We had a memorial gathering for my mother today. It was nothing if not a great party. One my mother would have loved. Laughter. Smiles. A very happy gathering of generations. Tender and touching.
If you wish to take the challenge, here is a quick look at the rules.

I am feeling for you, my mother died two years ago today. She was the stimulus to start me writing two and a half years ago.
Thank you for sharing your work and experiences with us fellow primates, MM.

Not to jump on the bandwagon, don't want to lose the meaning of this message.

That was really nice, and one of the most beautiful things is to be able to share memories and laughter when looking back upon the lives of our loved ones. It touched me, and was something that helped me today - to remember the good. Thank you

I am so touched by the way you write about your mother. I hope I am lucky enough to have my daughter feel that way about me someday.

I'm glad you got to celebrate your mother's life.

I would like to be immortal the way your mother is. You paid a wonderful tribute. I know she would have been proud of you.

I read this yesterday but I couldn't comment. (I was too sad.)

I'm back today to say that I'm glad she lives in your hearts. Remember her every day.

Chris said...

Sorry to hear about your mother, but I'm sure she's at peace now. Blessings to you and your family.

I hope all is well with you. I'm going to be off the blog world for the rest of this month, but be good, take care of yourself, and keep writing!

Cameron said...

Glad the service went well. Have been thinking of you and all you are going through. Love the tribute from today's re: humor and your mom's fabulous sense of it. Her memory clearly will live on.
Be well MM.
