It rained most of the day yesterday…and it wasn’t very warm either.
It kinda matched our mood. Into every life a little rain must fall. We stopped and picked out funeral flowers…yellow and light orange roses. We attended the Funeral Home Visitation for Far Guy’s last Aunt….our flowers were there along with many others. She loved flowers all of her life…and has many beautiful bouquets to mark her passing on. In her younger years her gardens were a sight to behold.
I have heard that saying “If you love me bring me flowers when I am alive instead of when I am dead.” I think she would have replied…I will take flowers when ever I get them!
Far Guy still has one uncle that is living on his Dad’s side of the family. He is now the “older generation” on his Mom’s side of the family.
Aunt Louise has struggled with health issues all summer…she has been in the Nursing Home since spring….now it is fall and she has died. She was 88 years old. We had a good visit with her in mid summer…her laugh was distinctive…we talked about her much loved husband who died in 2012 and her children. She and her husband had seven children…one is Alaska Guy who is the same age as Far Guy. He has been here most of the summer caring for his Mom. Sharon was here earlier in the summer…I missed seeing her…she and I were just a year apart in age and spent many childhood days together.
Rest In Peace Aunt Louise.
