Lastr Tuesday was a hard day for us. We went to the funeral of our dear neighbour and it was 5 months to the day Mum died. The crem was filled with people for her and her family. It was a non religious service, odd to me, no involvement by the mourners. When I think of Mum's not many people because the snow had shut us down but we sang the hymns and prayed for us all. It was beautiful.
We have got Mums stone now and I go up once a week and mow the area round where she is and keep it tidy as most of the relations of the other folk there are old and cannot get down to do it.The mower is a little hand push, does me good.We have planted primulas and mean to plant bulbs in the autumn.And when the roses come out will take them up for her.
It is a country graveyard so a bit overgrown in places, loads of primroses and wild flowers. It really is a beautiful place.
About your neighbor, Colin ... hang in there! It sounds like a beautiful place and I'm sure everyone appreciates your care of it.
about your neighbor & your mum too. My dad passed in 1999 & I miss him every day. My mom will be 87 next month, & I am so very thankful to still have her with me & our family.
