1 year since Mam passed away!

During our October break in Kemnay it was one year since my Mam passed away! We visited her grave and left some roses to park the occassion! It is remarkable how quickly time passes and it certainly does not feel like a whole year since she died. As you can see below the grave stone has been updated to include reference to both of my parents who died more or less 3 years apart.

Memories, memories!


This weekend I was able to visit my Mam and Dad’s graveside. The grave stone had been removed from the scene to have an inscription added about Mam who passed away last October. I wanted to view the gravestone to confirm that the inscription had been done to our requirements. I think that it is quite self explanatory with the exception of the word right at the bottom which is “Mizpah” – this has a special meaning, in fact my Dad had a wedding ring band which had this word inscribed on it.

This is what it means:-

“And Mizpah; for he said, The Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another.”

Feels like the end of an era!
