Resting Place

On Wednesday morning after the funeral my little family headed over to the cemetery to see my Moms resting place. We got there right after the sun had come up and there was such a feeling of peace and serenity.

It is beautiful there...

This building is near my Moms grave and is where I dressed her body for burial.

It will forever be one of the most sacred places for me. I was able to spend a few moments with her once she was dressed and lovely in her whites and we had her nestled in her casket. It was just the two of us and the feelings I felt there will forever be with me.

We had white roses for the kids to place on her casket and the
pallbearers wore pink carnations.
My boys - 3 white roses and 1 pink carnation.

The perfect spot for a genealogist.
