So, I got through my first Mother's Day without Mom. It was the first time I went to the cemetery since the funeral. They didn't put the inscription on yet for the year of her passing. It was weird knowing she was gone, but not seeing the date.
My brother had called me earlier from there letting me know it wasn't on and also the fact that there was no vase in the ground for flowers. He ended up just leaving the flowers he bought on the grave stone.
I called the cemetery on Monday and ordered a vase. It should be about a week before they put it in. I also called the place who are supposed to do the inscription to make sure the funeral director notified them. Naturally, she couldn't find anything. I had to call the funeral director. He was at a seminar and I should hear something next week.
Mom's birthday will be on May 26th. Memorial Day this year although she always called it Decoration Day. She would have loved that the holiday fell on her birthday.
I hope to get back to blogging soon. It's not like I haven't had anything to say.
