Mom spent many weekends and vacations fishing in the Pacific Ocean. By far her favorite place to fish. This picture was sent a few days ago taken by her son, Tom. He is living there now. Boy I bet she is smiling!! She loved that ocean. Spent countless hours walking the sandy shores looking for sand dollars .Also remember her deep sea fishing and she caught a baby shark.Another time a stingray. Remember Mom taking her grandson there fishing as he was just a toddler. She also enjoyed camping there also.The sunset is breathtaking there. I can't wait to fulfill her final wish and visit the Pacific with my brother and Sister-n-law. It will be beautiful to be able to share this with them. <3
As most of you know Curtis was born in California and Grandma took him to his 1st fishing experience at Lake Isabella. She baited the hook of his very first fishing pole she bought for him. Also used a bobber. Well he cast it out and low and behold after numerous tries,the bobber went down, he gave it jerk. He caught his vey first trout. He was so excited . "fishy,fishy" he said .
As I look at this picture I fill with tears. I see Mom holding my Hand. I couldn't even imagine how many times a mother holds her children's hand. But on this day she was so proud. On Feb 12th,2014 her son,Tom,and I ,along with her Grandson, Curtis and Son-n-law Joe, each took turns holding her hand. Told her a private prayer and said our goodbye's. So the next time you hold your child's or parent's hand remember it.and cherish it.
