Dear friends remembering Mom ~



~ A Poem for Mom ~

We lost our mother,
Our sister passed away.
Elfie went walking home.
An elegant lady of such
Style and grace...
She could have been a queen.
So many lives she could have lived,
But chose instead to be our friend.

Created and written by my mom's very dear friend: Dave Sumption ~ 18 Aug. 2010
Dave posted this to my Facebook,

"Hi Gini, I wrote a poem about your Mom and how her "dancing friends" feel about her. Just a few thoughts..."

Dave and Angelina were very close to mom...almost each and every weekend they would meet up and dance their hearts out...mom sure loved to dance!  Thank you Dave for a beautiful poem...and thank you Dave & Angelina for being such loving and loyal friends to my mom and to me.

Sentimental Sunday ~ Mom and Us ~




~ We love and miss you mom ~
~ 1933 ~ 2010 ~

Mom's service on Friday August 13th, 2010 was simple yet very beautiful...just like her. The service was simply elegant and true to who mom was in life. It was a perfectly beautiful day...

Thank you so much to Terri Kallio over at "The Ties That Bind" for the beautiful photo in the center of the above collage.  Terri, you took my favorite photo of mom & I and really made it special...it truly captures the love we have for each other.
