November 24, 2013 marks 5 years since my Mom died. November has not been a kind month for my family. My November birthday was spent burying my Grandpa back in the late 70s...then the day before Thanksgiving brought my Dad's funeral in 1988...and the day after Thanksgiving brought my Mom's funeral in 2008. Thanksgiving has not been a favorite for me for many years. Funny that one of my favorite pix of Mom is this one taken at Thanksgiving years ago.
Once Dad was gone, Mom really didn't want to live...but she did for another 20 years. I'm not a religious person, but I do believe that somehow they are together somewhere in the great beyond.
Here's to you Mom...give Dad a hug from me.
