We bought her new flowers. We gathered at her grave. They sung Happy Birthday (I couldn't bring myself to join in.)
They released balloons.
I hugged my boy.
Still a hard day, but a day filled with gratitude. And even some smiles.
I love my family!
Here's my dad tying a pink balloon to her gravestone.
Everyone came to show their support. I am so grateful for them.
(from left to right) Bret, his sister and mom, Little Bub and Me, my dad, and my nephews L and C. Little C brought his bubble blower to blow bubbles for Ella.
Isn't that the coolest thing?
Getting ready to release the balloons.
And off they fly!
Cute Little Bub and Grandpa.
Thanks for the pictures, Mom.
