     In conjunction with a "Remembrance Service" tonight I recall how mother loved the holiday season; she enjoyed decorating, baking cookies and candies to give away, gathering with family and friends but especially she loved children and animals. Mom made the best bows ever. We miss her and all others who left before her.

The Best Bow Ever

Remembrance Candles (iPhone4 image)
[Miss Milena, age 7, lit and put Jeremy's candle in one of the buckets.]
Click on the photo if you wish; I put mother's name on her candle; Jeremy on his.

     This is not my selection for PAF which will be posted later; however, I am including the layers for the above image because a couple followers are interested in texture processing. Thank you for your patience and consideration.

Such a priceless photo of your dear mum! So much sparkle in her eyes - I can see why you would miss her!
I lost my 90 year old dad only 12 weeks ago and it feels so like yesterday. I still miss him and it feels so weird not being able to pick the phone up and say hello!
Hugs to you dear friend,

Such a gentle loving tribute.
Lovely lady. It takes so long before the grief dies down but a photo memento like this must help a little.
