Update

Sorry it has been a while.  Mother’s day was difficult to get thru. I know there will be days like that. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make it any easier.

I made some calls last week.  My mom wanted her ashes to be spread around some flowers.  It turns out there are some legalities to that.  I thought at one point of putting her ashes around my younger sister who died in childbirth.  Unfortunately, that requires them opening up my sister’s grave to put the ashes there.  I can not scatter them.  It also costs over one grand.  I know my mom would be furious at the thought of my sister’s resting place being disturbed.

There is a park here in town I used to love to walk at.  Has beautiful landscaping and flowers.  I called them and even though technically it’s not supposed to happen, they allow it as long as we aren’t disturbing other park attendees.  Now I just need to coordinate with a few people who wanted to be there and watch the weather as best as I can.

I still needed something to feel close to my mom.  So I found a necklace that I can put a few of her ashes in.  Yes, I know I can go to the park but, it’s not the same as seeing her name on a stone.  I went to this website and found the perfect one.  Unless, I told someone, no one would guess what I would be wearing.  I have collected angels in the past.  An angel pendant is very fitting.  After all, mom is and always was, an angel.
