For One

In my family we believe my wife’s mother is checking in on us when a beautiful sunset presents itself.   My wife will say in the softest voice,  “Grandma Nancy is checking in.  Take a look boys.“.

Nancy battled pancreatic cancer.  She passed in 2001 and has checked in with spectacular beauty as we travel the world.

I think we can extend the ‘sunset’ time frame to include an extremely early sunrise.

Tomorrow, April 1st, is her birthday and along with Easter and April Fools Day (Not to mention Rabbit, Rabbit, Rabbit) there is a lot going on.  4.1

I told my wife years ago that we should celebrate each year and call it “For One”.  We will celebrate For One in the French country side this year by remembering her and telling/listening to stories.

I want people who knew her to chime in with ideas of what Nancy would like her day to look like, sound like, and taste like.  What did she enjoy?  What would your ‘For One’ look like?
