cjh ~ 17.12.49 - 6.7.89
this is my mother in her early 20s. yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of her passing. i like to make a note of important dates ~ the message is the same as the one i made for her 10th anniversary . . . time makes things like this very abstract.

This is so lovely. It's good to share. I'm coming up to my dad's 12th anniversary in October and it still feels like yesterday. I was so numb about it for a long time. His memory catches me at odd moments these days and I find myself missing him terribly. Here's to your beautiful mum! K x

Your mother really was a beauty. It is wonderful that you have such positive memories of her and can celebrate her life.

What a great idea! Every year that goes by after my father's passing 15 years ago, I think that I should do something commemorative, I just don't know what.

Thoughts with you.
Time doesn't seem to make much difference, does it - you just learn to live through it a little bit better.
Beautiful that you make a note each year to remember her. The only way that people are remembered is if talk and write about them.
