Did your family visit the cemetery at Christmas? How did your family honor deceased family members at Christmas?
My mom Margaret (Kelly) Hansen died rather suddenly November 30, 1994. Her diabetes had started to take is toll, and they were talking about amputating her feet because of poor circulation due to the diabetes. She was in the hospital and heading for an X-Ray when she died. That Christmas was a fog for me, and since then weather permitting we usually visit her grave between Thanksgiving and Christmas to put flowers in the little vase on the front of their niche.
Saturday the 19th we went to Priest River to deliver a Christmas present, and were going to stop by the grave of my uncle Leigh Hansen. He died December 2007 and is buried in the cemetery at Priest River, but they have several inches of snow there and his stone is a flat one so we did not stop, will go back on Memorial Day.
