Today would have been my mother's 75th birthday, had she lived long enough. Instead, mom passed away from cancer more than a decade ago. I read a blog post the other day over at Legacy.com that explained what Susan Roper does on her father's birthday each year. She buys 100 Hershey's candy bars and gives them out randomly to people in memory of her father. I think this is a wonderful idea! I only wish I had thought of it myself! In my mother's case, one of her favorites was peppermint patties. I could see myself handing those out. Susan had a reason for using the "100" count. I need to decide on an appropriate number to use for my mother...I know, 64! That is how old she was when she passed. It's never to late to start, right?
Happy 75th Birthday Mom!
(Perfect post to mark my 600th blog post!)
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
