A Rose for Megan
My son-in-law John sent me this photo yesterday.....It is a bloom on the rose bush he had planted in Megan's memory in the new rose garden at The Madeleine..... This is the parish they were married in and Megan's funeral was. Megs loved roses....and John loved giving them to her.
......and here is the bush.....
....and the marker in Megan's honor.....
....and John and the kids at the ceremony.....They also added a rose for John's dad who left us in May.
Thanks so much all of you who wrote about Gene's dad. Almost all of his children spoke at the rosary and the mass and it was so interesting to hear how each of them saw him in a little different way. The priest who offered the mass was the son of one of his best friends in grammar school and high school....and he too had some tales to tell. We all touch so many people in our lives and even the smallest encounter may be a lasting one......You just never know when or where it will be.
My best to all of you as you step out to encounter your week.....Jo Ann
