MEMORIAL WEEK PHOTO'S

We took our Grand-children to the grave site of their Great- great and Great grandparents last weekend.

They were interested in the graves and wanted to know all about the people who were buried here.

We answered their questions and talked about how special their great grandparents were.

When we started to leave, the children were concerned because the grave sites did not have flowers.

They walked into a field and picked the flowers that you see.

Then, Lauren ( 7) found her purse and brought a penny and placed it on the headstone.

Our son told the children of a tradition in the Jewish faith where stones were placed on the graves.

We all thought it was a wonderful idea even though we are not Jewish. We all set off in different directions to look for the perfect stone to place on the graves.

It was a special moment when we each placed our stones on the top of the headstone.

It was a gift to our family members and a day that our grand children will remember.

Your grandchildren are so good looking and pretty. Bless their hearts for wanting to put flowers on the graves. That was a great idea taking them to the cemetary to the graves of their ancestors. Helen

Great kids, so cute. You should be proud to be grandparents to them. Nice idea to take the kids on a trip to the cementary. It will be something they will always remember.
God bless them and you.
