The Photo Hunt theme this week is "In Memory." Wow! This is a tough theme for Mother's Day weekend, so we want to send special purrs to all of our bean friends who no longer have their mother with them.
The picture below is of my "sister before me", Muff. Muff was my mom's very first kitty and she got her when she was in her 20s. Muff taught my mom to love kitties and lived to be 19 years old. Muff went to the bridge 6 months after I came to live with my mom and 1 month before my mom's divorce (after 21 years of marriage).
The picture below is of my mom and her grandfather bean, Roy Gregg, or PaPa. My mom was the oldest grandchild and PaPa always told her, "You are my #1 grandchild." PaPa was a Baptist preacher and lived to the ripe age of 98 years and 11 months. PaPa went to the bean bridge two years ago on Good Friday and my mom sang three songs (Amazing Grace, The Old Rugged Cross, How Great Thou Art) at his memorial service. She said that was one of the hardest things she ever did.
I hope all of you have a wonderful day and get extra hugs and kisses from your beans.
