I Miss Mom

It has been almost a year since Mom went to be with Jesus. Alzheimer’s was not kind. But the entire family loved on her throughout the progression of the disease. I celebrated Mother’s Day by making a collage of my favorite images of Mom.

The Orange Wallet

We looked everywhere, we thought. The memory wallet made for Jenny/Guppy could not be found. Today it was found! Made based on a book about how to help Alzheimer’s patients remember their life, loved ones, and things that are important. Becky and Janet worked on the contents and then Becky laid out and assembled the wallet. Here are images of the pages. It gives a wonderful view of her life, what was important to her, and family.

I’ve made a number of changes in the Genealogy page. There are new images representing each family line, and basic information on each line is given. Check it out. I’d love suggestions on additions!

The Family News page has me stymied. I don’t want to give information that would compromise any family member. I might look into a password protected page that requires a login.

I have MANY old photos that I could eventually incorporate. It just. Takes time, energy and an organizational structure.


An experiment

This site is an experiment.  It mostly a place to post photos of our ancestors, but I’ve left it open to also discuss family news- the kind that is public and not specific enough to threaten our identities.  If you have a photo to share, email it to me and I’ll put it up.  Maybe you’ve run across a photo from years ago that you’d forgotten about, or something exciting happens and you want the family to know.  Maybe you’ve got news to share!

My news is that I’m going to China!  We got a great deal and were able to work with the schedule offered.

My other news is that I have three images in a gallery exhibit in May!  I’ve gotten excited about using Impressionism techniques and might like to enter the fine art marketing of photographs business.  I’ll let you know!  I’ll be posting more at my photography website, in the days to come.

Just as spring flowers are beginning to bloom, but yet still winter, the sunrise breaks through the top of the trees.
