5 condolences: Unforgettable memories

People often write in our Guest Books about things they’ll never forget about the deceased – a warm smile, a welcoming hug, a twinkle in her eye, the smell of his cologne.  And sometimes they share some unexpected memories that I’m certain I would never forget either. Here are 5 condolences about unforgettable memories:

  1. I’ll never forget the time we had the kids down here (Gwen & Curt) with us, dropped them off at a theater, went out to dinner, and forgot what theater we left them at. We drove around forever and finally found them – today we’d be in jail!  [Published in Daily Times]
  2. I will never forget the time you reached out the window to take snow off the roof, called George to the bottom of the steps, and then proceeded to smack him with the snowball :) You, Georgie, Matthew, and I found it a lot funnier than he did! But those are the types of memories that make me smile when I think of you. [Published in Morning Call]
  3. I’ll never forget the time her parrot got loose in the neighborhood. She searched high and low and finally found it in our back yard. That bird flew straight to her shoulder and squawked, “Mama!” It was the cutest thing. [Published in Star-Telegram]
  4. I’ll never forget the time Mike and I were in Florida and our daughter came over w/friends to scrapbook for the day. They had just parked in the driveway when Ole’ walked right over, demanding to know what they were up to. Jeannie explained she was our daughter and then he said they could go in. Later he told me about it and added, “I had a crow bar in the back of my pants just in case they tried anything because I didn’t know who they were!” [Published in Milwaukee Journal Sentinel]
  5. I’ll never forget the time we brought home a pig to raise, driving through Salt Lake City with the car window open and Dinky squealing very loudly. [Published in Salt Lake Tribune]

About Katie

I joined Legacy.com in 2002 as a part-time content screener and now serve as Director of Operations, overseeing Legacy’s day-to-day operations (Guest Book screening, obituary processing, customer service, and client service). I grew up in California, the daughter of a psychologist and a minister. My parents instilled in me the importance of listening to and caring about others. One of the things I appreciate most about working at Legacy.com is that I am able to have a small part in easing people's pain during one of the most difficult times in their lives. In my life outside of Legacy, I enjoy baking treats (and bringing them to the office to share), playing the piano, reading, taking pictures, tending to our vegetable & herb gardens, trying out new restaurants and foods, spending time with my husband, Chuck (whom I met at Legacy) and our kids, Brett Jr. & Josie, and playing with our hound dogs, Mugsy and Bo Jangles.
