Captain’s Log 4,391
Today would have been my mother’s 96th birthday. We buried her last year on her 95th birthday. The coincidence was uncanny. The sweet but quite befuddled priest allowed everyone in attendance to sing “Happy Birthday” to her before we took her out of the church for the last time.
I know I have been prattling on about her these last few weeks, but the first year is so very hard. And today is so strange. Anniversary of her burial and her birthday. What a combo plate.
Anyway….to honor her again, I am posting this video my niece put together. The eerie part about all of this was gathering the photos and materials so this could be ready to play at the funeral home. Indeed.
I hope you enjoy my mother.
