*Mom's Memorial*

I am so sorry to have left you hanging over the last several days.  I ended up taking a quick trip to Saskatchewan to be at the funeral of the dad of a very good and very dear friend of mine.  I've known the family since the summer before I started kindergarten back in 1975!  My friend lost her sister four years ago and her Mom is suffering from Alzheimers so I wanted to be there to give her a hug cuz I can only imagine how alone she must feel.

I spent less than 24 hours there but managed a quick visit to the hospice and got to see Mom's name on the memorial wall... The hospice now has a memorial tree on either side of the hallway and Mom is one of the first ones on the new tree.
Mom's butterfly is just to the right of centre, near the middle.... 
just to the left of the bronze and silver leaves that are together.
This is a close up of Mom's butterfly.  
It brings tears to my eyes, but I am so happy that it's there!

Thank you to everyone who helped us raise more than $2500 to get Mom this beautiful butterfly!!
