literally


My sister called - my brother and his family dropped by on the way to the cementary. The girls were dressed extra sweet and they were going by to put flowers on my mother's grave. They had told GA that they were "visiting" Mimi. So, they get to the graveside, GA asks "where's Mimi". My brother said, she's buried here. "Buried! Here?" Yes.

The question was asked, of course...."is this heaven?" No honey, it's just Alabama.

We all miss her.
