Last Friday we gathered for a simple Death Anniversary Celebration of my mom at Divine Shepherd Memorial Park. I thought it was only a gathering for the immediate family but I was surprised to see that most of the relatives were there. My mom’s sisters ( all 70+ in age) came with their families as well. It is heartwarming to know that they were not able to forget the occasion. I greatly thank God for the time bonding together as a Clan. Yes! I missed my mom…missed her touch…. her smiles …. her love… but her presence was made tangible through her sisters and relatives.
