Four years

I don't feel like I have much to say this year on the anniversary of mum's death. I still miss her all the time and I'm so sad that Kate won't know her except from my stories. I looked at some pictures today, but unfortunately, all the digital pictures I have are from when she was sick, so they make me sad. They make me wish I had been able to spend more time with her in the last few months.

I don't really want those to be my memories of her. I want to remember when she was well. Those are the stories Kate will hear. I guess I'd better dig out some photo albums.

I miss you, mum. I think you would think we're doing a good job down here.

While I was working yesterday, I too remembered your mom! Full of life, energy, and always with creative new ideas. Never a dull moment in her company, and much laughter. She always was, and to this day is proud of you! I too am sad that Kate will not know her first-hand, - but she will most certainly come to know her thru all who knew your mom. She'll get to think her grandma was near-perfect!
