Mom Chard's Memorial slide show
#1

We had Lee's mom's Memorial Service this past weekend, and it was very lovely. Many of you know she passed on a few months ago.

 

I created a slideshow in her honor. It includes photos from the 30's and 40's - pre-dad! ha-ha!

 

My two sister-in-laws created lovely collage boards which were displayed at the hall, and featured many photos I had never even seen before. It was great.

 

Here's the link to my slide show. It's a photodex presentation, so it may require a small/safe download to your computer first.

 

Enjoy!

Marion that was a really great and interesting tribute to you mum. As always so professionally done as we have come to expect of you, I admire you dedication to "getting it right"!

I would like to think I can watch it again with you in September and have you giving a description of the people and places involved.

Full of nostalgia, especially for you I know, but also for someone who lived through that era too !!

 

Thank you,

Colin.

Thanks for your thoughtful and kind words. I'm glad you took the time to watch it.

 

I started a family photo gallery last night. It only has one folder right now, and it's THOSE photos and many more of mum's.

 

Here's the link:

I have tons of photos to scan and/or upload yet. This will be fun. It's about time I began sharing this with our family.
