Thank you, Betsy, Beth, Deb, Kathleen, Lanny, Lisa, Melanie, and Stacey for this weekly forum and the #SOLSC that runs from March 1 to the 31st. Check out the writers, readers and teachers here.
Your treasure trove of pictures–still must have been hard to go through them in a way. I love your post for its profound effect. It’s a beautiful tribute to your first grandson. Again, my condolences.
What beautiful pictures and such a beautiful tribute to a special person. Thank you for sharing this! I find pictures (in a time of grief) bring me some peace. I hope the same has happened for you. Sending you hugs!
So helpful to do something constructive.
Oh, gosh- how poignant. So sorry for your loss. What a lovely way to share memories.
so many memories!
So much love in these poems and pictures, Fran…your family is lucky in that way, for those three beautiful children will still be enveloped in love.
Thanks, Tara, they “will still be enveloped in love”!
Such a wonderful tribute to your godson, Fran. The photos hold such beautiful memories as do the words you create. Your boundless love for your family comes through in your posts. Thanks for sharing with all of us. A big bear hug sent your way!
Thanks, Lynne. So many great memories! And thanks for the hug!
What a lovely way to keep those memories that we hold so dear. Keeping you in my thoughts, Fran.
I teared up as soon as I saw the title. Oh Fran. May the pictures be cathartic in your pain.
They really helped, Kristi! Thanks!
I hope the pictures and all the memories and stories they hint at, will bring a little comfort to you and your family and your nephew’s children. Thank you for sharing them with us.
So many stories . . . even when I just think of all the times that we have had “shirts” alike! LOL! ❤
Fran, these pictures capture so many happy memories of your godson. Thinking of you and sending you hugs.
Thanks, Catherine. It was fun to look through these but a bit frustrating when I couldn’t find “certain ones”. Time to get organized!
Will be checking in on you for a while, Fran. Sending daily thoughts, prayers, and hugs. The pictures are of happy lives.
Thanks, Melanie, for the thoughts, prayers, and hugs! It’s slow going. My sister loved seeing both of these posts today as we worked on Thank You’s. ❤
Oh, Fran- I can feel your pain across the miles. I’m sorry for your loss, and for your pain.
I appreciate the way the pictures told the story of his life.
Thanks, Allison. There is no real cure for a broken heart but time helps. Telling stories, funny stories, quirky stories, mis-telling stories even – ALL help! ❤
