Welcome to the Lost a Loved One team. The violets on your page are a beautiful tribute to your mother. I bought outdoor plants for my mother for her funeral because that is what she loved and planted them in my yard. Many thrived, some didn't and then I moved away. I thought I would miss the plants, but instead I have discovered that whenever I see one of her plants no matter who's yard it is in, I think warm and lovely things about my mom. Every African violet you see will be a love trigger between you and your Mom. Sending love and hugs to you on your health and wellness journey.
Anne, WELCOME to the LOST A LOVED ONE's team that we both belong to. It is a wonderful group of caring people. My deepest condolences and sorrow reach out to you in the loss of your beloved mom on 11/29/12. You're never alone in this journey of life and the tremendous loss you have been through. You are among an SP friend who has endured the stages of grief from losses of my beloved husband, both parents and mother-in-law within a (2)-year span. I am right by your side, holding your hand in friendship, embracing you with comforting support and healing hugs.
