my sister-in-law asked me yesterday if we were going to do anything special for ollie's bday. i told her there wasn't really anything we could do. we used to take flowers to the cemetery but we can't now that we are 1700 miles away.
the first year we were out here i had asked my sweet friend krissy if she would go put some flowers out for us and she so kindly did. i hadn't asked her to do that since but yesterday after i wrote my post i had an email waiting for me from her. she just wanted to let me know she was thinking of us and that she had gone and put flowers out on ollie's grave. when i read this i just burst into tears. she lives 30 minutes or more away from the cemetery now and yet she took time out of her busy day to do something for us that we cannot do for ourselves. what a servant's heart! thank you dear sweet friend.
