In the past, Memorial Day meant nice weather, going to the lake or camping or just enjoying time away from home. In the future, Memorial Day will be a very special day for us.....as we reflect on the life of Kate and how she brought us so much joy and happiness. I have to admit that things have not gotten easier with time. In fact, I feel that as time goes on.....the pain of losing Kate has been much greater. We did, however, spend a few days in Fillmore this weekend and were able to spend some time at the cemetery. In my personal opinion, I feel that the Fillmore Cemetery is one of the most beautiful, well kept cemeteries I have seen. I am so glad we made the decision to have Kate buried there.
When I think of Kate, I think of lady bugs. She is our sweet little Kater Bugs and I wanted to do something different for her grave site, hence the ladybug theme. I think it turned out really cute. We were finally able to pick out a headstone. Apparently, it takes about 3 months for it to arrive. We're still hoping that we can have it here by her birthday in July, but it's not a guarantee. I'll be excited to get it here and set.
We enjoyed spending time with my family this weekend. Here are some cute pictures of Mia at Grandma Roper's house.
