The grave marker for my mom on Memorial Day

Posted By on May 27, 2013


Although Memorial Day is one where we remember and honor those who have sacrificed their lives for our country and our freedom, this year I’m remembering my mom who died 5 months ago since her grave marker was set in time for Memorial Day. I think spending a little time there with my dad helped with closure for him (and me), although he admits it is challenging to be alone and to feel a purpose. Thankfully he has many friends in Sidney and several activities each week; between yard work this spring, church, retirement gatherings and his card buddies, he is keeping his calendar full. I stop when I can each week (or so) and my brother and his wife bring him dinner regularly. Still I know there is a void.
