This do in remembrance of me... I Corinthians 11:24

I changed my entry for this theme..After our mother died on October 26th, I
decided that I need to scan some of the photographs in her albums in
remembrance of Mom ..Family pictures always meant a lot to her and to me.
I have shot many pictures over the years of my late parents on our visits to them
and on their visits to us....What would we do without those memories.

The two picture poster boards shown on this entry, I had set up previously for Mom's funeral on Nov. 1st..There is lots to do after the funeral in going through her belongings also. What we did not take back, that my sister and I shared, we left at the nursing home for their spring rummage sale. I am never without anything to do and my list keeps growing longer. If I don't get anything else done, family pictures to be gone through are on my priority list.

    Thank you all for your kind words...It is very much appreciated. I had been wanting to get my film pictures organized for a long time to scan plus now go through my mother's photo albums and I hope to accomplish that goal by the
    end of this winter....Pictures really help us to remember the good moments
    that might otherwise be forgotten.

    Andrea Petersen said (20 Nov 2011):

    Thanks again for the comments and the congratulations...My late mother would be so proud that I made the blog ...I have been doing more scanning and discovered a very tiny old ancestor picture amongst Mom's collection of pictures that was showing a little girl of around 3 years with her family of relatives and it turned out to be a cousin of my late mother's who is still living at 87 years old and she was delighted to see that picture as she had no record of herself at that age in any of her albums...She was able to identify the year it was taken which was 1927 after I asked her some questions about it.

    this is one of my favorites! I love the old vintage look. I will never, ever, get tired of this style or look. It is so nostaligic and visually appealing
