We visited the gravesite today. This photo is my Mom standing where her parents and my father are buried. As I stood there with my own flood of emotions I was overwhelmed by how this moment and place must affect her. It was a very sad moment.
I am leaving today to return to Portland. The rush of emotion is tossing me around. I am so thankful I was able to extend my stay a few days, the quieter time with Mom has been so good. I am anxious to return home to my family and friends, but feel as though I have left part of me here.
