In Memory

Many of you may follow my blog and my mother's, as well, and may have noticed a long absence. I have finally composed myself enough to return to my blog and update any followers of the blogs or October Pumpkin Stamps.
I will likely tell my story in pieces, as it is too sad to sit down and tell it all at once. For today I will say... I have lost two of the most wonderful people in my life!
The young photographer, photographed is my father near the age of 21.
The young lady is my mother near the age of 21.
The final picture is of our young family, around 1969.
I LOVE these pictures! All taken by my father who was a professional photographer. I have so many more that I love ,but I found these fitting for today!
This entry is in memory of my father, who unexpectedly died November 15, 2010
and in memory of my mother who died December 11, 2010.
The story is very sad and I will soon be writing about it hoping others may find strength in my story for themselves.
Mom and Dad, I LOVE you and I know you are at peace!!!


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I commented on your mother's blog a few times. She was so nice.

    I lost my mom in Aug of 09. I still want to pick up the phone and call her.

  2. Thanks Tammy! Mom was very nice( sometimes silly too - LOL!) I am sorry for the loss of your Mother also! It is still very new for you too! We will get through it though! I kept telling Mother that in her last days so she could let go! She was so worried if my brother and I would survive the sudden loss of she and Dad. Have a great Day and thanks for stopping by the blog!
