Merry Christmas

This year certainly flew by. It is hard to believe that it has been so long since my last post. My son was married in early October to a lovely young women that we all love dearly. Working with them on their wedding plans we saw how much they loved each other. Their wedding was and always will be one of the highlights of my life. My mom, 89 years old, was so excited for them too. She lived the last five years with me. She attended the wedding and the reception staying longer than I thought she would. She was so proud of her "Will". His name is Bill but she always called him Will.

Shortly after the wedding mom wasn't her spunky self, lost her appetite and wanted to sleep more. She passed away in November the Monday before Thanksgiving. She was so loved and is missed every minute of the day. Our holidays this year will be so different.

From our family to yours we are wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

Hugs and Stitches,

Merry Christmas to you as well, Pat.

Although it's been six and a half years since I lost my Mom, not a day goes by where she is not in my thoughts...especially now at Christmastime. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
