Day 2

Another day spent with family. We enjoyed our visit with Mom’s sister.

She has such a pretty yard with lots of flowers and she showed them all to us. It was funny at times with all three of us trying to remember the names of the different  plants – they were right on the tip of our tongues!

After we left, we drove to Edenton to visit the cemetery and to put flowers on my grandparents graves. Mom doesn’t get back to NC very often now – I know not everyone likes cemeteries but I love visiting them and this one had my grandparents, my great grandparents and numerous other relatives. I would love to spend a week or two just documenting this cemetery. 

After the cemetery we went to a local nursing home to visit Mom’s last living aunt – she will be 98 in August!! Then back to the hotel and more cards that night with Kevin and Mom.

    I am one that doesn’t like cemeteries, but the fact that you like them and enjoyed the visit makes me happy. I think all of us should respect what make other people happy and celebrate their joys.

    I have always enjoyed going to the cemetery where most of my family is interred. I find it peaceful and a time to remember in this busy fast paced world. I also appreciate using Find A Grave when doing genealogy research.

    I enjoy visiting cemeteries. I accompanied my mom every year to decorate the graves and sometimes just pop in for the solitude.
