S: Family Memories 2004 - 2009

FC: Family Memories | 2004 - 2009

1: Dearest Mother, This memory album was created especially for you with much love in November 2009, to be my gift to you for Christmas 2009. The chronology for the display of these photos is from most recently taken in 2009, then going back in time to 2004. I thought that would be a different approach to viewing photographic memories, and I hope you find it interesting. I would have done more, but most of my photos from earlier than 2004 were not digital as of the time of this compilation. Also because of the amount of time it took to create this would have meant it would not be ready for you by Christmas! My hope is that it will bring joy to you each time you open it and peruse these pages, but I also know it will bring a few tears too, especially the back cover. But those tears should be of joy, since we know your beloved husband, my father, is in God's Kingdom in eternal bliss, where we will one day all be reunited, if the Good Lord desires it! God bless and keep you forever, my wonderful mother! You have been an amazing source of inspiration to me in your practice of the Catholic faith, and I thank God to the depth of my soul that He gave you to me as my mother. With Abundant Love & Gratitude,
