Pam, what a very kind & sensitive gesture. I remember when my dad died, my mum still wanted to celebrate their wedding anniversary; she said his death didn’t stop them being married & she was celebrating the event which had occurred on that date.
Your mum was – & still is – very, very precious; I’d like to join in the celebration of her birth with you.
Thanks to you all! One of the nurses I work with in the hospital met me at lunch carrying a slice of carrot cake. She handed me a fork and said we had to eat cake to celebrate my mom’s birthday. She said we were celebrating a life well lived and the legacy she left of a loving daughter.
She made me cry but I thought it was one of the dearest things anyone has ever done for me…..
