I wish I would have known this info so I could attend the celebration of life and find out what his later years were spent doing. His wife of 63 years died last year I think of cancer. She held on until her granddaughter got home from college. Amazing story.
What kept me up was the idea of contacting their dauther-in-law to get updates on both of my former in-laws. Not sure I'll do it, cuz I was thinking it would be weird. It's amazing that people I haven't had contact with for over 25 years brought sorrow to my life upon learning of their death.
Say hello to little Miss Melissa Mouse.
She was sent to the field from her house.
To pick yellow flowers that were in season.
To make into tea, that was the reason.
But alas, little Miss Melissa Mouse,
Couldn’t hear Mama call from the House.
Melissa Ann Mouse where are you?
You need to be here so I can brew.
That wonderful tea for all my friends.
I’m sure you know how this thing ends.
Little Miss Melissa Mouse had so much fun.
Throwing the petals one by one.
That she skipped home without a thing.
And oh poor Mama did she ever sing!
Mama Mouse learned a lesson that day.
Get it yourself or you’re the one who will pay.
Here are two cards I made using Carrie's directions found here:
I made changes to her design a bit to make it mine.
Blessing of the Day: Tim got home safely! Thank you God.
Thanks for stopping by.
