Mary's Memorial

B's Mom Mary passed away a couple weeks ago due to complications from pneumonia. It's been a very sad couple of weeks for B and our family. If you have noticed that I haven't really blogged much lately or commented that is one of the reasons. B has been sick with cancer for the past year and a half and hasn't been well enough to spend much time with his Mom. So I know that losing her was not only painful but he also regretted not being able to spend time with her in her last days.

B really wanted to throw a memorial party for his Mom to be able to celebrate her life. Mary lived in Texas for 20 years and didn't move back home until about 4 years ago so she didn't have many friends up here and B has a very small family but his friends knew his Mom growing up and they all loved her. He wanted to have an evening with his friends and some family to remember Mary so that is what we did. Here are some pictures from the evening.

B's Sister Shannon made an awesome memorial board

Mary was an amazing little lady. She was so kind and had a big heart. She loved her children and LOVED her Grandchildren. She will be deeply missed.

It looks like a really great way to remember her and I have no doubt she's going to be greatly missed.
