Oh Miss Roo,

Thank you SO MUCH for this truly enchanting description of El Dia De Los Muertos and the loving tribute to your dearly departed. The photographs were so visually stunning I couldn't take my eyes off them!

Of course, everyone has heard of the Mexican festival, but I didn't know the details. I think I would like to go to Mexico again and enjoy this festival in an authentic way.... with mucho tequila!

My favorite part of your story was Grandma Imogene and Grandpa Andy. What a sweet romance they shared! And the diamonds! Grandpa Andy was a very wise man and obviously knew how to treat a lady.

You are a treasure Miss Roo. I am so happy our paths have crossed and that I just need to look to the left to catch a glimpse of you. Maybe someday in person even.


rhonda roo, this is so incredibly touching, i'm not sure what to say. it made me almost cry and definitely laugh. what an awesome way to honor, grieve, reconnect with the people we love.

That was very sweet my dear. There are so many of them, that you could have a blog twice as long couldn't you? Your great-grandmother Lannie.....what a dear soul and great inspiration. Aunt Shirley, a beautiful woman, full of life all her days here on earth...I'm sure all those mentioned appreciate being remembered. And all the rest in our hearts...I love them all and miss them terribly. We honor you our dear spirits.....we appreciate all you taught us in life here on earth. And we appreciate your continued watching over us and extending help from time to time. xoxoxoxoxoxoxoox
