A Mother’s Day Tradition

It’s been a long-standing tradition to visit the family cemetery on Mother’s Day weekend to decorate the gravesite of Grandma (Georgia) Miller. As most of you know, Chuck lost his mother last fall so we had even more reason to keep the tradition going.

After paying our respects, we walked around the cemetery identifying family plots. The earliest member we could find was born in 1843. For record keeping, I took photos of every headstone that bore the family name and quizzed Bill (Chuck’s father) on how we’re related. Every time we told Jeremy how So-and-So was related to him, he’d ask, “Did he fight in the Civil War?” Our little history buff is going to love our summer trip to Washington D.C.
