Quick Personal Post.... My Grand Aunty "Lee" Leona

Quick Personal Post.... My Grand Aunty  "Lee"  Leona

Today we all took the day at the 
Suquamish House of Awakened Culture
to celebrate my great Aunty Lee's life.
Today was her 86th birthday....she passed last month.
It was a great memorial, if ever there can be a great memorial.  Family from all over told stories of 
how they were touched by Leona.

My Aunty Leona always telling me stories 
of how everyone else was doing, and of my grandma when they were girls, or stories of when my mom came and visited.  

She really did keep everyone together.
She also was so much like my grandma Anne, her sister.
I spent a lot of time over my life with my grandma.

So here is the Grand Lady
Aunt Leona Mae Berg - Strickland
And below with her Brother George Berg.


Hugs Kisses!


Ferry Ride Home......
It was a VERY long day.
I am not sure I have the strength to craft tonight.....
well It is a three day weekend after this...
This is what the vision was today as we were on the ferry home...

A lovely tribute to your Aunt Leona, Kimberly; a woman who had an impact on your life in such special ways. Mayyou always treasure memories of her - and I agree with Jane about preserving some treasured moments in scrapbook form.
