Take me back...........

The wreath I maded for mother.

Memories My 80 year old father, me, baby brother and baby sister. Dad is losing more and more weight.
He is grieving himself to death. They would have been married 61 years in Oct. Mother was only 78 years young. She was shy two months to her 79 birthday.

This is one of the wreaths that I made for mother grave site. Gosh, How I miss her.

This year my husband and I took a trip to my fathers for my dad's family decoration; decoration is where all the family meets to decorate the graves of their love ones. It is on a Sunday and we have dinner and spend time with all the relatives at the grave site. This has been going on since I was a small girl and longer. This is Cumberland Gap Park, it is about 8 minutes from where my father and mother lived. As you know my mother passed away in March of this year.

I miss her so much as does my father and siblings.

The sun cast shadows on the mountains.

Looking down into the town of Middlesboro Ky.

Scenic area. This wall is new. I had gone there because some 15 years ago my mother and I carved out names in the wood that surround this area and I went back to find her name and it had been replaced with this rock.

So pretty here and peaceful. My mother loved to come up here.

Oops, I don't like to have my photo taken; this slipped in. I was thinking of mother here!
We hadn't taken a picture here years ago and I can't seem to find it.

Beautiful trees and rocks.

Looking down the mountain.

It was a perfect day for Steve and I had to take a hike in the park.

Steve, is a real history nut. He loves anything history; he should have been a teacher.

Another scenic view.

Thank you for stopping by.
