For this week’s challenge, I’m reusing a photo from my father’s funeral. Not only are the flowers fleeting, but it also reminds me to make the most of every day with those I love. Our time here is measured, and we know not the hour of our passing.

For Dad’s funeral, Mom didn’t want a large flower arrangement for the casket, so she asked each of us to pick a rose color to personally place on the casket at the graveside. We had two of each color (lavender, yellow with red tips, deep peach, dark red, and pink), for each child and their spouse. The grandsons added their white pallbearer carnations, and the granddaughters placed pick carnations. Mom’s was the sole white rose.
