An unusual piece of history

I'm sitting here working...promoting the awesome Hybrid kit...and Landon is sitting next to me playing video games (his first day of summer vacation). He's kind of a video game nut...xbox, pc, gamecube, gameboy, ds, etc. Well, he occasionally pulls out our very old Nintendo 64...one that I had long before he was ever even thought of.

He throws in a Tetris game, and as he goes through the menu options, I see my mother's name listed...the first player to play the game. She died in 2003, when Landon was two years old, so he doesn't really remember her. I told him who LindaJ was, and then he decided he wanted to play her profile. It's funny...of all the things that I have to share my mother with him...it happens with a video game.

LindaJ (game profile)
She had just turned 50 in this photo and died one year later, 5 days before her 51st birthday. I still haven't scrapbooked it.

Beautiful Mom! She could be your sister too! I didn't know that about you KH. Thanks for sharing the tough times too. I can't even being to imagine the pain you have felt. Having lost my Grandfather (who was like my father) is the closest thing to me that I have had to let go to the Lord. And that pain stabs at me daily still. As you might have seen/read on my own blog.
