“Memories of Purple”


Description from Chicky Red-haired Grammy: As time marches towards the first anniversary of my mother's death, I find my thoughts turning to purple, her favourite colour. Fortunately my strawberry blonde hair is turning white so I am able to embrace purple in my clothing and accessories. A colour I never wore has become a colour of choice. We are our parent's keeper... I miss her every day.

    I lost my Mother 29 years ago. My daughter and the joy of her life was only 16 months old. I still miss her and think about her all the time. Just be sure to remember all the happy times, OK?

    My mother died in 01 got up had a heart attack right in bed, just the way she wanted to die, in her own bed, she was 80. I have no one to call if I need a recipe or something. I will see her again in the resurrection.

    Such a beautiful purple pick to honor your beloved mother, Merilee! I lost my dear mother in 2009 and still miss her so very much. As time passes, I am able to remember her with happy memories instead of dwelling on her passing. It’s still hard — I often think of something or read something I wish I could share with her. Maybe she somehow knows…..

    I find myself wanting to share an event or book with Mom and have to catch myself up short. She would have LOVED the 25 Year’s of the Oprah show magazine I saw last summer. We are always our mother’s daughters, aren’t we? And I am so proud to be her daughter.

    Merilee, I wish I could give you a hug from so far away. Your beautiful pick has touched my heart. Perhaps your ability to now wear purple is a loving gift from your mother…….a way that she can still *touch* you.
    I lost my mother when I was 2 years old and don’t remember much. But I swear I know her and feel her presence in many ways. We WILL see them again one day. Hold tight to that thought! :-)
