Family Photos


We had a memorial service for my mom today, and there was time to visit with family and friends before the service began. My sisters put together collections of snapshots and family portraits and they were on display for all to see. In this photo my sister Betsey, at left, is showing some of the photos to two of my mom's friends from the Women's Club, where my mother was a member for 50 years. My brother-in-law Vince is at right in the photo, obviously enjoying the scene. It was a beautiful service with a wonderful pastor, and so many people came, some from a long way away. We were all moved by the experience.

Love it that you captured your sister laughing because memories of loved ones who are gone should leave us smiling and fill our hearts. Looks like your sisters did a lovely job with the pictures.

Amen to that other commentor. It's beautiful to see Aunt Betsey laughing, which is what Gramma would have wanted her children doing when they talked about her. I wish I could have been there, but I was there in my heart. xo Amy
