Thanks a bunch you guys for your posts. They all gave me warm & fuzzie feelings.
2 years ago on Thanksgiving my dad passed away, and 3 weeks ago, I lost my mom.
At her funeral at the cemeteray, I looked at her coffin and said, no more Easter dinners, no more Christmas dinners, no more Thanksgiving dinners… mommy… I have no one now.
My mom was the only person I had whom I celebrated these meals with being that so many relatives have passed or are so old they cannot attend.
I remember the Easter eggs, the Easter braided bread with the egg in it, the roasted lamb on the spit, the little pig on the spit, the many buffet dishes my mom would have out to feed 40-50 people. The roasting spit meals were my dad’s expertise…
The cakes, pies, cookies and all sort of Italian pastries… such memories!
The Easter baskets for the kids, their cute little Easter outfits, oh, the joy on their faces.
Thanks you all for your traditions. Please contine to contribute to this thread…
& Best Regards to all,
