Memorial Tree


I have been receiving some very kind comments on my last post about my scrapbook for my Jonny.....yes it is very therapuetic....along with the book and this blog I have done a balloon release with a grieving support group and bought a tree to be planted at my church....I still go through the stages of grief, and will for quite some time, but I still have the support of family, friends and co-workers...


I check Jonny's My Space to read the messages his friends continue send...he loved his friends and they love him....

  1. I am glad that the scrapbook for Jonny is therapuetic for you. The tree is lovely...another touching memorial to Jonny.
    Hugs and smiles to you, Beachgirl.

  2. Jonny's friends still sending him messages on his My Space page is one of the sweetest things I've ever heard. And how wonderful for you, and you know a part of him will go with those friends all their lives.
    I really like Jonny's tree, and I really like his Mom too.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you,
    Eileen

  3. How incredible...I did the balloon thing for Mario with my son and dil...we wrote notes and put them inside the balloons and released them off a mountain in Phoenix. At first they didn't act as if they wanted to go up, but then they did, but ever so slowly...it made me feel close to my husband.

    And as for trees, the Master Gardeners' here have a memorial arboretum and I asked Mimi about getting a couple of trees there, so it amazed me when you wrote about the tree, too!

    blessings and prayers for healing,

  4. Sandy, there is a 'Charming Award' for you at my blog, there is no button that goes with this one though.
    A lot of the bloggers are saying the awards are getting to be a bit much, so I understand if anyone would rather not participate.
    Just want you to know I really enjoy your blog, and I really enjoy getting to know you better.
    Take Care,
    Eileen
