Two months after Mom's passing, the family gathered to say goodbye. Cate and her family, and Mike and some of his family came down for a weekend of remembrance . We took Mom to Rosecrans National Cemetery where she would join Dad. We gathered around the crypt and shared thoughts and feelings about Mom…Cate wrote, and read aloud, a beautiful letter full of wonderful memories. Amasa, also read his letter , which was lovingly written… so heartfelt and touching. Needless to say, there wasn't a dry eye amongst us. After the ceremony, we came home where I finished preparing dinner. We all gathered around the table, ate and shared more memories. The rest of the weekend included more eating, family time and a walk on Coronado Beach, where we came across a Sandcastle in honor of the Navy Seal who had recently died in Iraq and was also being honored at Rosecrans National Cemetery while we were celebrating Mom.

A special season in the garden…Springtime… the last one in this garden. Where we've spent so much special time sharing meals alfresco with family and friends… Created with lots of love and work, it will be so hard to leave behind…
