SEPTEMBER - A TIME TO REMEMBER


        The month of September is fast coming to an end but it has always been a very special month for our family. Mom was born on September 1, our parents got married on September 8 and our father's birthday was September 23.


        Above are pictures of our mother and father as well as their wedding picture. Mom has never failed to remind us that she was told that after our father met her he went home and told his family that he met his wife today!:) Thank God they managed to have 27 years together until our father's sudden death on August 14, 1975. The wonderul memories live on and my next post will be a tribute to him.

Your posts are so very poignant and uplifting. I read through several of them. I'm very sorry you lost your sister. Blogging does seem a good way of dealing with a loss I can't even imagine.

The photos of your parents are beautiful. The photos of you and your sister are even more so.

I'm following you and look forward to future posts.
