Titia just sent me this link. Thank you for remembering my mom's birthday. We put a birthday memorial in the newspaper for her. We used a picture of her holding her first grandchild (I would put the picture here if I knew how). And here's what the ad said:

In Loving Memory on your Birthday
For our Mom and Poet,
You were taken from us too soon, and we miss you more than words can say. We remember your love and generosity, and we remain in awe of your braveness, energy, and lust for life. Thank you for all you gave.
Foreverly yours, Robert and Dana, Steven and Gia, Tracie and Sean, David and Kim, and your grandie girls Delaney and Landry. We love you to the moon and back.
Her grandie girls sent a balloon to heaven for their Poet's birthday. They told me they could see her thanking them, and "she was wearing a pink nightgown with flowers on it, and she had wings, and she grew her hair to her shoulders, and it was straight". Isn't that cute?
