The nursing home where Mama was a resident has an annual remembrance service for all the residents who died during the previous year. Yesterday we had the privilege of attending this sweet service.
As each deceased person's name was called, their family was presented with a small gift:
After some music, words of comfort and refreshments, there was a memory balloon release.
This is the Arican Violet that was in Mama's room that she loved. Purple was her favorite color. It now sits in my kitchen window and is blooming again.
Love u Mama!
