I apologize for the quality of these pics. I had to do some scanning and some settling. I've already mentioned my poor organizational skills, so I'm making do.
Today, in our household, we will remember:
"Uncle Cary" My mom's younger brother,
Donald Douglas "Cary" Savill
1948 - 1999
The top picture was taken in the spring of 1993. It's my Uncle Cary with the picture he painted and gave to Leland and I as a wedding gift. The inset picture was taken at the Savill Family Reunion in July of 1999. Uncle Cary was my FAVORITE uncle growing up. I'm grateful that he did get to meet Sean before he died and am sure that he is entertaining Seth in Heaven.
Grandpa Savill, my mom's dad
Donald Colin Savill
1925 - 2000
Both of those pictures were taken at the Savill Family Reunion in July, 1999. That's Sean on Grandpa's lap in the top picture.
"Grandpa Red" Leland's dad,
Monte Lee "Red" Bonnett
1935 - 2003
The top picture is Red holding Sean in December of 1999. The bottom picture is Red holding Cary and it was probably late 2001 (December, maybe?)
And of course, in our home, we'll remember:
"Baby Seth" Our sweet, sweet boy, Our little "tough guy,
Seth Douglas Bonnett
March 27, 2008 - October 12, 2009
The first picture was mid-August 2008, on our living room sofa. The remaining pictures of Seth were taken by the wonderful photographer, Heather Evans at Slice of Life Photography. She donates some of her valuable time to the hospital, giving families losing children, precious, precious ways to hold onto their memories. They were taken on October 2, 2008. I didn't realize until just now that the outfit was the same.
Today, as we do EVERY day, we remember.
As I"ve been going about my getting ready to go out with the kids today, I've been humming and singing a song that I feel is appropriate for this post & this day.
