Valentine’s Day 2-14-12
My little love Kathryn wasn’t here to give a card to or to get a card from. She really wasn’t much into Valentine’s day because she thought you shouldn’t need a special day to let those people you love know it. But we would still exchange cards or gifts. I didn’t need a special day to know that she loved me. I’m sure she knew we all loved her too.
On this day we spent an hour or so at a friends house looking at containers he has made. This container would be for her ashes. I think she would feel honored to have an urn made by an artist and family friend. This is a difficult decision to make. It will be the permanent place for Kathryn. At least most of her. We will also spread some of her ashes.
We also spent a couple of hours at the church. I’m glad I didn’t wait until next week since there were many questions that I hadn’t answered.
Richard put together the cover for the bulletin for the service. He will head up to the mountain early in the morning to ski. This will be good for him. We may go up too for a couple of days.
Hope you all have a loving Valentine’s Day

2.) If you don’t know what a Luminaria is you can bring a vase of flowers for the tables – but make sure it has a bright bow around the vase. Let Carol (Mom) know if you are bringing a vase of flowers so we can keep track of how many.
