>This past weekend my family got together again. I think that we all had this feeling that we just needed to do something, so we did.
My cousin Nick masterminded this project in the Tabor City Park to honor Grandma Dalene. It turned out beautifully, and it gave us an outlet for our grief. We are all still healing, slowly, and trying to be there for one another and for Grandpa. Our family will never be the same, but we can sure put our need to act to good use.
A favorite quote of mine is, “Storms make Trees take deeper roots.” This storm has led us closer together in a lot of ways, and here is the culmination of our collective efforts. I hope that it brings a lot of enjoyment to those that use the park in Tabor and gives the Herd of Turtles a place to rest on their walks. 🙂
Nick had the idea to inlay a letter “H” for our family name across the circle from the memorial stone and Brian and I were laying out the bricks.
Here is the mastermind at work cutting bricks
