Flowers of Remembrance

May 27th                               Here is a photo of my dad's flowers for what would have been his 90th birthday this year.                                       Coleen wanted to take her Great-Grandpa a flower too so she picked a piece of clover and I put it into the vase along with the other flowers.
She was so sweet while we were there.  Even though she never knew her Great-Grandpa we've shown her pictures and have talked to her about him and she knows he's in Heaven with Jesus now.  Just before we got ready to leave she asked if she could say a prayer.  I told her that would be fine so she went over to the grave and knelt down, folded her hands and prayed, "Dear Lord Jesus,  Thank you for this day.  Please take good care of Great-Grandpa in heaven, Amen." 
 Let me tell you it brought tears to my eyes and my moms.  What a child like faith she has.  I hope she never loses that faith.  We could all learn from her.

Here are the Memorial Day bouquets we took out this morning in spite of it being another drizzly, rainy day.  From L-R, Bouquets for my Grandma Ida, Grandma Pauline (I'm named after both Grandmother's), My Dad, and my Aunt Sadie who was one of my dad's sisters and helped raise him.
May they Rest in Peace and may their memories be ever present in the lives of those who knew them.
