5 condolences: First week of spring

It’s getting to be that time of year again… flowers are peeking out of the ground, there’s a fizz of green on the trees as tiny leaves get started, and here in the Midwest we are determined to wear shorts and t-shirts even on days when the mercury doesn’t quite hit 50. It must be spring!

While we gaze out our office windows wondering when we can start gardening or jogging outdoors or working on our tans, we’re not the only ones. Guest Book visitors love to think about spring, too – speculating on when it will arrive, declaring that it’s here, and sharing special spring memories of their loved ones. Today we share 5 condolence messages about spring.

  1. “Grandpa Dick”, as he was affectionately known, was our harbinger of spring. Spring could not be far off if Dick was in the garden, tilling the soil.  Dick and Alice embodied the spirit of this country.  They loved and protected the land, preserving it for future generations.  They passed their values of thrift and hard work to the next generation. They were a model to us all. [Published in the New Haven Register]
  2. Hi Mom, spring is here and I was thinking of you and how you liked to walk around and look at the flowers in my gardens. Looks like the bradford pear tree is going to bloom again this year, I know you sent sweet kisses for the blossoms. [Published in Ocala Star-Banner]
  3. Hi Lou. Spring is coming. I can tell by the song the cardinals sing. We would always talk about when the bird songs changed. You would be starting to think about your flowers and garden and wishing the warmer weather would come. You would be loving the warmer days to run. Miss you. Thinking of you. [Published in Omaha World-Herald]
  4. Spring is here and the grass is turning green, the tulips are waking up and pushing up out of the ground. The pecan tree is budding out. We will put together the raised vegetable beds this week, and enjoy having our hands in the earth.I will think of you. I miss you everyday Daddy. [Published in Houston Chronicle]
  5. Mom, Spring has arrived! At least in my yard. Went to Home Depot today and bought the store out of spring flowers. I couldn’t help but think of you. I hope that it’s always springtime where you are Dad are resting. [Published in Florida Times-Union]

About Linnea

I joined Legacy.com in 2000 as an obituary writer. In the years since, I've done a little of everything for our Operations team, from content review to customer service to creating web pages for funeral homes to training new employees to my current position, Content Manager. I love this position, because I get to write little bits & longer pieces - whatever's needed at the moment - and I get to proofread a lot, satisfying my inner nitpicker. And I love being on the blog team, because I get to write interesting features for the blog. I love to write! In my spare time, I... can you guess?... write. I'm hoping that one day I can add "published novelist" to my bio. I also enjoy working in my vegetable garden and cooking, baking, canning, making ice cream, and pretty much anything else in the kitchen. I love to read, compete in trivia contests, and attempt to keep up with my Netflix queue.
