Love and Remembering

It's been four years this month.
Your memory never fades.
I think of you every day.
And send you, all my love.

Dedicated to my dear mom: Helen Ruth Hartman, who passed on May 2007.

She loved to laugh and to sing. I think she would have loved my idea for a happy blog too, that's why I decided to post this tribute here.

Her life was one filled with all kinds of creative pursuits. She brought so much joy and beauty to the world. 

I will treasure all the good times we shared, always. 
Remembering and honoring our loved ones on the other side should be a joyous thing, in spite of the sadness. Holding on to all the good memories.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms. 

Also submitted for the OSI prompt: Love

Gerladine, this is a wonderful tribute to a wonderful loving woman, your Mom.
I like your idea of putting a remembrance of her here.

My mom died in February 1999 (at age 88), Dad in February 2007 (age 97). Dad's obit and tribute is on my blog. Mom's will be if I ever get back to working on my memoir blog.
