Memorial Garden

We have been busy building a Memorial Garden in honor of our two angels, Tony and Rhonda. This is a great idea and really worked out well with all the perennials we had from the funeral. I only had to buy a couple of flowers to fill in with (actually, being the anal one that I am, I had to make it somewhat symmetrical-at least to start out with!) It's a good thing I happen to know a great landscaper that was able to do all the back-breaking work me. I really just had to plant the plants in the ground, my wonderful hubby did all the hard work. Now I just get to pick out some stepping stones and stuff like that for in there, but that's the easy part.It looks a little sparse right now, but I am confident that the perennials will frow and spread and it will all fill in the next couple of years. Patience...

Thank you to everyone for all your well wishes and prayers. I truly believe that is what is helping us get through this tough time!

A Huge Call-in Order Bonus!

First of all, let me say a huge thank you to everyone for your kindness and sympathy at this most difficult time.

Rhonda is our angel that will forever be in our hearts and memories along with her brother Tony.

My scrapbooks are even more priceless now than ever before. Maybe that is why I have been so adamant about my scrapbooking. Maybe it is all part of my bigger plan.

Our beautiful Rhonda...

I have some terribly sad news to share with all of you. I have been missing for a while and probably will be for a little while to come.My precious daughter, Rhonda, was killed in a car accident last weekend. We are in total shock and are just trying to cope. She was such a beautiful and vibrant young lady that we will miss terribly. She has gone on to be with her brother in heaven. Tony now has his arms wrapped around his little sister so she is not alone. You can read her obituary at Skinnerfh.comThis is just too much for any parent to have to go through even once, and now for the second time in 9 months we have to go through it again. Please remember my family in your prayers.
