Flowers for Lola
On July 2, 2013, I posted about the sad passing of MR's grandmother. A wonderful woman who will remain in our hearts and memories. MR's sisters informed us that the funeral was happening today. Not being able to be physically there is tough for MR, but we have no choice. That's why we thought we could respectfully dedicate some time for Lola (Filipino term for grandmother) this afternoon.
MR, SO, and I went on a little walk close to our house, alongside the summer fields. Fields that are lined with flowers, which we picked to a make a simple bouquet.
At the entrance of our town, there is Mama Mary resting calmly, watching and protecting over us. We like to come visit Mother Mary once in a while. We left her our bouquet of flower with prayers for the peaceful rest of Lola.
