  1. Your Mutti looks so sweet and lovely! I am sure she can still feel the love. Josephine is my favorite name. =) The birthday postcard is one of the sweetest I have seen in a while and I love Marguerite! Thank you for sharing!


  2. I shall forever think of your Mutti and this picture when I sing Happy Birthday. I feel so special to have something special made by her hand so long ago and purchased long before I knew you and your family. The Lord works in mysterious ways .


  3. She was so loveley, dear Patty.


  4. Gone but never forgotten XX


  5. Not long ago on a day when I was especially missing my dad, a friend shared a quote with me…it immediately became one of my favorite quotes. Today I share it with you, dear Patty.

    “When someone you love dies, you don’t lose them all at once. You lose them in pieces over time, like how the mail stops coming.” Adult Joe Wentworth – from the movie “Simon Birch”

    I watched the movie after my friend shared the quote…it’s worth the time.

    You dear mother had a beautiful smile and twinkling eyes…and that cake looks scrumptious.
