TSS – In memory of Hazel Burris Coy, 1913-2008

This week has been a blur. My mother did in fact stay with me, which made me super happy. It was the first time I had seen her in two years, and I loved that she stayed with me. We were able to visit late into the night, catching up on all the things that’s happened in the world at large and in each of our lives in general (as well as in my siblings’ lives). Stories were told and retold, the histories of our family were re-remembered, and of course we talked about my Grandma whose death was the reason for the trip.

I’ve made a memorial video about my grandma, and I would like to share it with you for this Sunday Salon. She was a good woman, a loving wife and farmer. She was a mother, a grandmother, great-grandmother, and even great-great-grandmother. She lived a long and full life, and she is loved and missed.

The video won’t work here on WordPress, but it does work at my Blogspot blog. Please swing over there and watch Hazel M Coy, 1913-2008, a long and full life of love and wisdom. She is missed.

AND THE WINNER IS!!!

Erisian has won the Why You Shouldn’t Eat Your Boogers book and $10 gift card. Email me your address, Erisian, so I can get that out to you in a few days ;-)
