Remembering Mom

Today marks the first week without Mom.  We got back into town on Monday night, but I just didn't feel like blogging for a while.  This has been pretty rough for me... especially blogging about Mom's passing.  I started this blog over 5 years ago specifically for her.  When we found out we were pregnant with Niko, she remarked that she was going to miss all the little things that happen in between grandkid visits.   I tried to blog every day so Mom would feel like she was part of our daily lives.

I didn't take any photos during the wake or funeral.  I did take this photo outside of the funeral home - they had this nice banner on the fence outside of the home.

This was the cover of Mom's memorial jacket.  Lots of old photos and memories here!

Mom and Dad's wedding photo

Mom with Morris the cat.

One of my favorite photos of Mom ever.  Jenny put those stickers on Mom's face.... hilarious.

Mmmmm...... crawfish.

I always thought it was awesome that Mom would go to the Comic-Con with us for one day.  I can't even remember what year this is, but she was wearing her con shirt.

This is another photo from our trip to Houston.

Mom and Dad on my wedding day.  This is easily one of my favorite photos of the folks.

So sweet to post your favorite pictures of her! She's so pretty in those pictures!

I bet more people read your blog than you think! Some may read it, but just not leave comments.

Your Dad may find comfort in reading it.

I read it, my mom reads it, Robyn reads it, and I'm sure there are more.

I started my blog for Travis' family. I didn't think they read it, they hardly talk about visiting and only talk on the phone when Travis calls now. When we went there last, Grandpa Tom knew what the boys are up to.

If anything your boys will love looking back at it someday.
