Tuesday's Treasures ~ Stopped to say hello

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

On Monday the day after Easter Austin experienced another beautiful day only instead of being in the 80's it was in the 60's....with the sun shinning it didn't matter!

Son John took Handsome Hudson and Beautiful Beckett on a field trip later in the afternoon from home school. They stopped and picked out a cactus with bright yellow blooms and drove to the Austin Memorial Park Cemetery where Paw Paw rests now. The sun was out, there was a nice breeze. A beautiful day to stop and say hello!

What a nice thought and a good thing to do to teach the grandchildren to respect and honor those who are no longer with us physically.

Dorie that was a very thoughtful thing for John to do, and keeping Geno's memories fresh in Beckett's and Hudson's minds.

Morning Dorie.

What a great quote, it looks like BB was tired.  I suspect it was a long day

Hi Dorie:

What a thoughtful, and important, thing to do with the grandkids. I wonder what they were thinking, or asking about?

I love going to the cemetary to talk to my mother.  I always feel like she is there for me - I am sure that your husband knew that his grandchildren were there!
