When we moved back to Louisiana a little piece of my heart was left in Georgia. I missed my friends so much!
Well as time went on, those same friends made visits through the years to our Lousiana home and to our delight found spouses here and so they moved here too. ( much to their parents dismay I'm sure:) A few weeks ago we received a call that our friends mom had been taken to the E.R. and things wasn't looking to good. A few days later she slipped away from mortal to immortality.
As I packed for the trip to Georgia to attend the funeral I remembered our friends Mom. What a good mom she was.
I wish our return to Georgia hadn't been on such sad circumstances but while there we took our girls to some of the familiar places that was dear to hearts growing up there.
The Chickamauga battlefield. The tower that soldiers built with their own hands. So much history there.
My niece Kammi at the base of the tower. Walking up those stairs is hard work!
The view from the top of the tower
Two happy girls at the very top.
They wanted a picture of themselves peeking over the top of the tower. They were saying"Repunzel let down your hair"!
My sister Nan and Kami
Kami and Savannah
Mama Diane and her babies
After the funeral we went riding around and drove to Fort Oglethorpe. In the historical district they have the prettiest Victorian houses. This pink one is a dream!
