Her Legacy Lives On..

The treasured ornament, hanging on our little appropriately labeled tree, was created by my niece, Tammy.P1000360

Of course there is a story here.

This is the famous picture that is my FaceBook cover picture. The date was January 25, 2012, and I was standing just outside mama’s bedroom door. She did not know that I had taken this picture.2012-1-25

On March 23, I took this picture. Even in her last four months of life on this earth, Mama missed reading her Bible very few days.2012-3-23

The picture taken on January 25 was a favorite among family and friends, so much so that her first granddaughter scrapbooked it and had the page printed and framed for Mama’s Celebration of Life. deru12-4611

And the story continues. Said oldest granddaughter had keepsakes shipped to her home in Washington and as she sifted through Mama Trudy’s Treasures, she found a box full of mementos that spoke volumes about her legacy: tiny little personal Bibles full of verses of comfort, assurance and salvation.P1000454

Tammy knew exactly what she would do with these little Bibles and her creative mind went to work on a Mama Trudy Legacy 2012 Christmas ornament for Mama Trudy’s family.P1000455

It is just precious to me, indescribably.P1000456
