I'm married to a wonderful guy, mom to a grown son, mother-in-law to a delightful daughter, and 'mom' to a pair of crazy dogs. The priorities in my life boil down to- God, Family, Friends, Country. In that order. Fortunately, I've made my digital scrapping hobby a part of all of these! You want to know more about me? You can read my profile...or just ask! :)

Marion Blakemore 1919-2006

My Aunt Marion passed away yesterday. She was my dad Walter's older sister and only other living sibling.

Her visitation and memorial service will be Saturday morning, since that's the only time that one of her children can get a flight from Florida to Illinois and back. I'm trying to figure out if I can get home in time for it without causing additional stress to my family.

Please keep all of us in your prayers during this time. Knowing that she was declining fast in no way really prepares you for the grief that follows a loved one's passing.

I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Marion and celebrating holidays at her house in Streator. I'm glad that I was able to visit with her a bit when I went home in February.

I have been keeping her, and all of you, in my prayers, and I'll continue to do so. I hope the service went well and everyone was safe.
