Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
In September 2009 my saintly Mama celebrated her 90th Birthday. Four generations of our family gathered to share that special, happy day with her. We also went up to the military cemetery where my Dad, her Husband, had been buried 9 years before with all honors due to his Army service in WWII.
As my family members supported my Mother up the hill across the uneven grass towards my Dad's Military Memorial Headstone, I captured this special photo that means a lot to me and my family.
My Mother was able that day to see exactly where she would be buried when she passed away some five years later. At that time her casket was buried on top of my Father's casket as a military cemetery option for veterans and their spouses.
My Mom's name and the message "Together Again In Heaven" were inscribed on the back of my Dad's headstone. My parents finally rejoined the many other folks of the "Greatest Generation". They all were effectively remembered as they rested in peace surrounded with many other headstones stretching to the dark "curtain-like" trees in the distance.
Now we can Pay Our Respects there at the military cemetery as well as in our own life actions and thoughts everyday!
